How much do you know about Scottish history?
We all know bits of it. This book by the authors of Scottish History: Strange but True sets out to show how these ‘bits’ fit together – how the characters and events of Scottish history made the country of Scotland.
We do not ponder ‘WHY?’ we demand ‘HOW?’
How was Scotland founded by refugees?
How did the Vikings make Scotland happen?
How did King David save Scotland AND give it away?
How did Robert the Bruce forget Scottish history?
How did a King of Scots declare war on Scotland?
How did the Jacobites win every round, yet get smashed in the final – twice?
How did Scotland embrace kilts and tartan after it banned them?
