In this book, Alistair Moffat brings vividly to life the story of this great nation, from the dawn of prehistory through to the twenty-first century.

Ambitious, richly detailed and highly readable, Scotland: A History From Earliest Times skillfully weaves together a dazzling array of fact and anecdote from a vast range of sources. The result if an imaginative, balanced and varied portrait of Scotland, seen not just through the experience of the kings, saints, warriors, aristocrats and politicians who populate the pages of conventional history books, but also through that of the ordinary people who have lived Scotland’s history and have played their own important part in shaping its destiny.
