From the Stone Age to the present, this book charts the impact of the Celts, Picts, Romans, Irish, Vikings, and English, of battles, wars and empire. The great and the good figure prominently, of course, but the story of Scotland is also about ordinary people, who lived and loved, worked and died, mostly leaving no record at all. Under the guidance of Gordon Menzies, Scotland's leading historians have combined to produce a work that is revealing and authoritative. Powerful people figure prominently in the book: St. Columba, Queen Margaret, David I, Wallace, Bruce, James III, James IV, James V, John Knox, the Covenanters, the Jacobites, the philosophers and scientists of the Enlightenment, the Victorian entrepreneurs, and the power brokers of the twentieth century. Accompanied throughout by spectacular full-color photographs, illustrations, paintings, and maps, the book's trenchant views and evocative descriptions will entrance anyone with an interest in Scotland and the Scots.
