The Tribes of Ancient Scotland

Authors note:

Before we proceed, we would like to offer a quick explanation of the title of this article and the thoughts driving the articles production. Scotland is an ancient country, older than most other modern European countries -including England- but as an understood named identity early Scotland (Alba-pronounced Alpa) did not exist till King Constantine IIs reign sometime around 920 AD, some 840 years after 79 AD when Agricola and his legions marched over the line of the modern border between England and Scotland intent on conquest, glory and assimilation. The term Scotland, like England is used in this work as a convenience to enable the reader to readily locate the places being described within the text. for more click here
