As the shouting and screaming Caledonians swarmed down from the forested ridges, I was sure they would just sweep across the Romans and destroy them. The Romans showed no signs of panic, despite being heavily outnumbered. A row of soldiers armed with slingshots stepped forward from either side of the ranks of the Roman force and faced both onslaughts of the oncoming Caledonian warriors. As I watched, each man swung his slingshot around his head fast, and then hurled the stone it contained hard and straight into the front rank of the Caledonians. The effect was devastating. (pb)
