From history, she knew the Caledonian tribes of North England (now Scotland) to be a fierce people. To enforce Roman rule, Emperor Trajan sent the 6,000 man strong IX Legion to Britain, to subdue the Caledonians, only to have them mauled and destroyed. When Hadrian succeeded Trajan, he was convinced that the only way to protect the empire was to build a wall between the Caledonians and Britons. In doing so, people, supplies and ideas were severely restricted from intermingling, allowing for two separate cultures to emerge and evolve at different rates. Sheryl wondered if this is why Scottish culture is somewhat different from British culture.
