In an epic narrative, sometimes moving, sometimes astonishing, always revealing, Moffat writes an entirely new history of Britain. Instead of the usual parade of the usual suspects - kings, queens, saints, warriors and the notorious - this is a people's history, a narrative made from stories only DNA can tell, which offers insights into who we are and where we come from. Based on exciting new research involving the largest sampling of DNA ever made in Britain, Alistair Moffat shows the true origins of our island's inhabitants.

Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Birlinn
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Map on lining paper From the Ice Age to the recent Scottish referendum, Alistair Moffat explores the history of the Scottish nation. As well as focusing on key moments, such as the Battle of Bannockburn and the Jacobite Risings, he details episodes that are perhaps less well documented. From prehistoric timber halls to inventions and literature, his tale explores the drama of battle, change, loss and invention, interspersed with the lives of ordinary Scottish folk - the men and women who defined a nation.

Type: Book
Content type: Bibliography
Publisher: Birlinn
Physical or Electronic: Physical
Note: Previous edition: 2014 Originally published: 2014 Best-selling author Alistair Moffat offers fresh insights into one of the most famous battles in history. As 8000 Scottish solders, most of them spearmen, faced 18,000 English infantrymen, archers and mounted knights on the morning of Sunday 23 June 1314, many would have thought that the result waS a foregone conclusion. But after two days' fighting, the English were routed. Edward II fled to Dunbar and took ship for home, and only one English unit escaped from Scotland intact. The emphatic defeat of the much larger English force was the moment that enabled Scotland to remain independent and pursue a different destiny. This book follows the events of those two days that changed history.
