Description - A History of Scotland by Peter Somerset Fry

Covering a staggering period from the Pictish peoples and their symbol stones to modern devolution, Mitchison's absorbing narrative remains the classic introduction to Scottish history. This beautifully written text covers the key social and political aspects of the growth of this nation, and comprises cultural systems of thought such as early witchcraft beliefs and the Scottish Enlightenment. A History of Scotland is packed full of famous people and events, including: the rebellions of Robert the Bruce and William Wallis in the early fourteenth century the fall of the Black Douglases in 1455 the Battle of Flodden in 1513 the rule of Mary Queen of Scots and her execution in 1587 Bonnie Prince Charlie and the second Jacobite Rebellion in 1745 the literature of Robert Burns and Sir Walter Scott. Now with a new introduction by the author, this wide-ranging and unique account remains one of the finest histories of Scotland.
