A great history of ancient and early medieval Scotland, with a particular focus on the mystery of early Scottish political organisation.

A history of the Island of Lindisfarne and the resident saint, Saint Cuthbert. Equal parts personal history and Medieval history it's alright. Not earth shattering but a pleasant journey.

This is a very readable book which does a great job of bringing the characters involved to life.

I thank my friend, David Grebow, for recognizing that I would have enjoyed this book. At first, I wasn't sure if he knew me well enough or not and I just dipped into it from time to time. But he was right. As I progressed through it, I got more and more enthralled. I've finished it and I really liked it. I spent a year of my naval training in Rosyth, just across the Firth of Forth from Edinburgh and, as a member of the school's marching band, I visited much of the border country that the author describes so it meant something to me from that aspect too.
A year in the life of the the author at his property in the Borders is interlaced with prognostications of "the past" supported by buried metal 'finds', stones and land shapes. Fascinating.
