Under Roman occupation, Scotland was an unwilling part of a huge empire whose system and ways were entirely alien to its native people. The price of resistance was slavery or death, crushed beneath the imperial foot; this is a leg from a larger-than-life Roman statue. From Milsington, Scotland, 2nd century CE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
