Scotland: A History From Earliest Times


by Alistair Moffat

‘Comprehensive and detailed…deserves a prominent place in the history canon’ – The Scots Magazine

 ‘A very readable, well-researched and fluent account’ – Scotland on Sunday

 ‘With his instinctive flair and accessible style, Moffat gets right under the skin of the country’ – Farming Scotland

From the Ice Age to the recent Scottish Referendum, historian and author Alistair Moffat explores the history of the Scottish nation. As well as focusing on key moments in the nation’s history such as the Battle of Bannockburn and the Jacobite Risings, Moffat also features other episodes in history that are perhaps less well documented. From prehistoric timber halls to inventions and literature, Moffat’s tale explores the drama of battle, change, loss and invention interspersed with the lives of ordinary Scottish folk, the men and women who defined a nation.
