Did the Romans conquer the whole of Britain?

 Q:   Ask a Question about Did the Romans conquer the whole of Britain?       
Did the Romans conquer the whole of Britain? The Romans gradually conquered the whole of England and Wales, partly through battle and partly by making political arrangements with some of the Celtic chieftains. When the Romans reached the north of England, however, they stopped. The Picts from Scotland fought the Romans fiercely, raiding their farms and garrisons.

The Roman lines were over-extended and it was difficult to supply troops so far north. The soldiers were mostly from warm Mediterranean countries and they found the cold, wet northern climate of northern England difficult to adapt to.

The Romans built Hadrian's Wall to keep the Picts out of the occupied territory. This huge structure stretched from east to west across northern Britain. The wall was garrisoned by soldiers and supported by a string of military forts.
