In the early decades of the first millennium AD, the outline of the land is recognizable straight away-the angular eastern coastline, the fretwork and crumbled fringe of sea lochs, headlands and islands on the west, that still form the familiar shape of Scotland today. For thousands of years, people have been living here. Though their far-off ancestors came as settlers after the Ice Age, these people by now are natives, aboriginals in a real sense.
What happens next to them and to Scotland is described in Ancient Scotland-from the coming of the Romans till Scotland's emergence in the eleventh century as a single kingdom and one of the first unified states in modern Europe.
Though shrouded in the mists of time, the people and events that shaped Scotland's ancient history are brought to life in Ancient Scotland. This is a book for anyone interested in how Scotland and Scottish people have evolved down the centuries.
