Explore what life was like for Roman and Celtic people living on the north-western edge of the vast Roman Empire.

Despite several waves of attempted invasion, unlike southern Britain settled for nearly 400 years, Iron Age Scotland was never fully conquered by the Romans.

This exhibition explores global and local stories, and the relationship between Roman and Celtic-speaking people of North Britain.

Way back before Scotland was Scotland and Perthshire was Perthshire, the land belonged to Celtic tribes: the Caledonians, Maetae and later, the Picts. This is the story of what happened when these people met the might of the Roman Empire.
