Synopsis

In this modern age the regional and national boundaries which define Scotland seem fixed and permanent. But of course this has not always been so.

In this book Alistair Moffat looks at the shifting political shape of the land long before its modern borders were created. In doing so he brings to vivid life the half-forgotten kingdoms that came and went during Roman times, the Dark Ages and the early medieval period. This is a fascinating journey into a tantalisingly little-known period of our history, yet one which is crucial to our understanding of who we are and where we came from.

'Moffat's tireless reasearch ... and commanding knowledge bring these forgotten peoples to life' – Scottish Field
