"Scotland: From Prehistory to the Present" is a lively new history from one of Scotland's brightest young historians. This revised edition starts with the early settlers after the last Ice Age, and the myth and ritual that surrounds that prehistoric period, the author charts the evolution of the Scottish people - as Scots, Picts and Angles - and their interaction with the world abroad, from invasions by the Romans and Vikings, the medieval wars of independence with England, and continues on right through to Devolution.

Includes chapters period by period, a chronology showing the major events throughout Scotland's history, a list of the Monarchs and their genealogies, together with a map showing the major towns and regions of Scotland.
