Editorial Reviews

Review

Anyone looking for the cutting edge of historical understanding of northern Britain from the earliest times to the Viking Age should look no further. -- I. Ward Amazon There are many qualities in Fraser's work which make it ideal as set text on Scottish history. The author writes with great clarity, even when dealing with complex issues. His work is detailed and the general perception that there is little material to write a history of the Picts is effectively blown apart by his close scrutiny of sources written by neighbouring peoples... This is surely one of the most ground-breaking books on Scottish history of recent times. -- Claire Downham, Univsersity of Aberdeen Journal of Scottish Historical Studies The field of 'Pictish studies' has advanced in Scotland in recent years. The author has been at the forefront of some of these developments and this book is a measure both of his intellectual ability and his tenacity in solving many of the 'Problems of the Picts'. It deserves to become a recommended text. -- Alasdair Ross, University of Stirling Early Medieval Europe A very important contribution to the study of early Scottish history. It is a rigorous piece of scholarship and a treasure trove of new ideas that will excite scholars and general readers alike. -- Fiona Edmonds, Clare College, Cambridge Scottish Historical Review Anyone looking for the cutting edge of historical understanding of northern Britain from the earliest times to the Viking Age should look no further.

Format: Paperback
I own this book and it has so much amazing information in it. I have ready through it time and again over the years, and each time I seem to pull a new tidbit of information from it to inform my changing perspectives of research interest.

This book is not for those who want an easy read; it digs deep into the evidence and possibilities of the time period. Be ready to think long and hard about the arguments postulations.

Format: Paperback
Clearly aimed towards undergraduate students of Scottish history, this book and its companion volume by Alex Woolf, are the most authoritative texts on the early medieval period in Scotland. It's not an easy read, but a little hard work pays off.

I was very excited to read this book because of the time period, but this is like reading death. The most complicated history book I have ever read. Impossible to follow unless you are a college proff.
