|In 77 or 78 A.D., Gnaeus Julius Agricola was made governor of Roman Britain,he occupied until 84. In his first year, Agricola subdued the Ordovices in Wales and pursued the remnants of the tribe to Anglesey, the holy island of the Druids. According to , he exterminated the whole tribe. The Ordovices do completely disappear from the historical record, but considering the mountainous terrain, it is unlikely killed the entire population. Another tribe, the Silures, was either also militarily defeated or simply agreed to terms. wrote of the Silures: non atrocitate, non mutabatur - the tribe "was changed neither by cruelty nor by clemency." A Roman squadron, sent by Agricola, explored the of Scotland for the first time, discovering the Orkney and Shetland Islands.|
