The Eagle of the Ninth

In The Eagle of the Ninth Rosemary Sutcliff writes of Romans recalling that the Caledonians

… loosed their arrows into us from behind every tuft of sodden heather, and disappeared into the mist before we could come to grips with them. And the parties sent out after them never came back.
