This story of early Scotland begins 10,000 years ago at the end of the Ice Age when the familiar Scottish geography of mountains, glens, and rugged coasts evolved. It follows the movement of hunter-gatherers north, the growth of fishing, the establishment of farming.
The author also covers cultural evolution in Scotland – the roles played by megalith builders, Celts, Picts, and others.
