Description - Medieval Scotland by Alan MacQuarrie

The picture of medieval Scotland that emerges is a surprisingly 'modern' one, with its rich racial mix - the Scots were not a pure Celtic people but a mixture of Celtic races, Gaels, Picts and Britons, with strong non-Celtic elements such as Norse and English - and its strong regional identities making it almost egalitarian. From the situation in Scotland at the end of Roman Britain until the political and religious revolutions of the sixteenth century, including Scotland's achievements in the creative sphere, the social life of the people and the nation's relations with the rest of the then known world, Alan Macquarrie reveals the richness of Scotland's archaeological, linguistic, artistic, religious, literary and architectural heritage.
