During the first millenium AD a large part of northern Britain evolved into the country we know today as Scotland. This was an era of transition which saw the end of prehistory and the beginning of the Middle Ages. It was an age of wars and alliances, but also a time of trade and settlement.

It saw the native Celtic peoples of northern Britain deal with Roman invasions, Viking raids and the predatory ambitions of Anglo-Saxon kings. These upheavals brought social and political changes that are still present in the languages, laws and landscape of modern Scotland.

How the new kingdom arose from the troubled centuries that had gone before is one of the stories told in this book.
