New Book Moves Important Battlefield

In his new book, author James Fraser claims that the battle of Mons Graupius, which allowed Rome dominance over all of Britain, occured not in the north of Scotland, but in the south.

Historically, Mons Graupius has been placed in Aberdeenshire, but Fraser believes that the actual site might be near Perth. Fraser's book, The Roman Conquest of Scotland: The Battle of Mons Graupius AD 84 is scheduled for publication in the summer of 2005.
