This for the traveler who wants to see Scotland's early history. This book directs you to the areas of Scotland's roots. The history of the land before it became Scotland. It's a very good guide by region to where and how to see and discover the earliest of archaeological discoveries in Scotland. Great to plan a early history tour of Scotland. This is not the guide to Braveheart's Scotland but of his possible ancestors.
