Continues Neil's landmark exploration of how our land and its people came to be, which began with the acclaimed A HISTORY OF SCOTLAND.

About the Author

Neil Oliver is a Scottish archaeologist, historian and broadcaster known for his distinctive voice and long black hair and as the charismatic presenter of the award-winning documentary series COAST. His 10-part 'bold, pugnacious and authoritative' HISTORY OF SCOTLAND on BBC2 was a critical success as was the book of the same name that accompanied it.


This is a fascinating piece of little-explored history
*Catholic Herald*

A fine introduction, and an excellent encouragement to get out and see some of the places under discussion
*BBC History Magazine*

[Oliver] uses his archaeological training to good effect in a text that is both appealing and interesting - nay, fascinating - to those who have little or no training in scientific research
*Contemporary Review*

[Oliver] succeeds - brilliantly - in making people who lived thousands and tens of thousands of years ago human. In doing so he connects us to our distant past with a vividness and immediacy that catches both your imagination and at times your breath. Buy and read
*Family Tree Magazine*

Oliver, an archaeologist whose long black hair and piercing gaze has earned him a superstar status, is a fascinating guide
*The Lady*

Above all, Oliver is a great storyteller, and what a tale it is
