あらすじ・解説

Five hundred million years of Scottish history from the author of Arthur and the Lost Kingdoms: "Deserves a prominent place in the history canon" (Scots Magazine).

Covering the Ice Age to the recent Scottish Referendum, the acclaimed historian and author explores the history of the Scottish nation. Focusing on key moments 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 epic explores the drama of battle, change, loss, and innovation interspersed with the lives of ordinary Scottish folk, the men and women who defined a nation.

If you enjoy digression, this book is for you.

This book seems more like an endless digression and less like an actual discussion on Scottish history. It jumps from 8,000 BC to the signing of the declaration of Arbroath and back, via hunter gatherers in Doggerland and Scandanavia.

I'm sure there is a point, but to be frank I'm missing it.

A stirring account of Scotlands past right up to the present

My one complaint was the missing three millennia from the arrival of the Beaker people to the Claudian invasion of Southern England. Apart from this omission (probably due to the shortage of written and archaeological sources) this was a well written, well read and well researched account of Scottish history. Moffat, in my opinion, has matched or even surpassed Neil Oliver’s ‘ History of Scotland.’ I found myself riveted by the description of the migration of our people and Irish immigrants from the country to the towns by a clear and empathetic narrator. I could go on, but I will finish by saying I thoroughly recommend this audible book to all those interested in Scottish history. A must have!
