Description

In a breathtaking hundred pages, Tony takes you from the arrival of Mesolithic people in the Highlands of Scotland in 6000BC, through Scotland's story right up to the Scottish Parliament of today. Enjoy learning about the transition from hunter gathering to farming, the invasion of the Picts and their long rule before the Scots muscled into Argyll. As the Scottish nation emerges, learn of elected kings, the injustices of William Shakespeare's assassination of Macbeth's character and the effects on Scotland of the conquering of England by the Normans in 1066AD. After Normanisation comes the annexation of Scotland by Edward I, William Wallace, followed by the true Braveheart's struggle for freedom and eventual independence, only to have it all literally given away to the arch enemy by Scotland's own king less than three hundred years later. Finally, experience the pathos of the Jacobite uprisings but then thrill to the possibility of the nation rising once more as the new millennium dawns.
