In a breathtaking hundred pages, Tony takes you from the arrival of Mesolithic people in the Highlands of Scotland in 6000BC, through Scotland's story right up to the Scottish Parliament of today.Enjoy learning about the transition from hunter gathering to farming, the invasion of the Picts and their long rule before the Scots muscled into Argyll. As the Scottish nation emerges, learn of elected kings, the injustices of William Shakespeare's assassination of Macbeth's character and the effects on Scotland of the conquering of England by the Normans in 1066AD.After Normanisation comes the annexation of Scotland by Edward I, William Wallace, followed by the true Braveheart's struggle for freedom and eventual independence, only to have it all literally given away to the arch enemy by Scotland's own king less than three hundred years later.Finally, experience the pathos of the Jacobite uprisings but then thrill to the possibility of the nation rising once more as the new millennium dawns.

About the Author:

Tony Harmsworth has been presenting Scotland's history to the public for over twenty-five years through exhibitions, audio-visuals, lectures and as a tour guide. Among the exhibits he has designed and scripted are the Macbeth Experience and the Fort Augustus Abbey "Story of Scotland" exhibit, which was the largest private exhibition in Scotland in the nineteen-nineties. In addition to giving talks on Loch Ness and Scotland's history, Tony has recently been guiding private tours of Scotland, usually from Inverness, but also one-way to or from most Scottish destinations. During these tours many of the stories in this book, as well as many others, are recounted in a dramatic live narration.
