Interesting things that a person can find reading others things on this "information" system.

A supposed speech by a Scot Highlander leader before a major battle at the end of the 1st century. Supposedly the Romans won but the Romans never effectively administered what is now Scotland during the time the Empire held the lower part of the main island...

“We are the last people on earth, and the last to be free: our very remoteness in a land known only to rumour has protected us up till this day. ….But now there is no people beyond us, nothing but tides and rocks and, more deadly than these, the Romans. It is no use trying to escape their arrogance by submission or good behaviour. They have pillaged the world: when the land has nothing left for men who ravage everything, they scour the sea. If an enemy is rich, they are greedy, if he is poor, they crave glory. Neither East nor West can sate their appetite. They are the only people on earth to covet wealth and poverty with equal craving. They plunder, they butcher, they ravish, and call it by the lying name of ‘empire’. They make a desert and call it ‘peace’.”
- Calgacus, ca. AD 84. Speech before the Battle of Mons Graupius, the Scottish Highlands against the Romans.


"And God said, Let us make man in our image …and let them have dominion …and all the creatures that move along the ground".
Genesis 1:26

Calgacus was a pict. The Dalraida Scotti wouldn't cross the Irish Sea for a few hundred years.

Ok, but they lived in the Highlands. Same general attitude...
