Product description

Edition, with facing translation, of chronicles from the late medieval/early modern period, concerning the history of Scotland. They build their version of medieval events on Scotland's foundation myths and exhibit a distinct anti-English bias - indeed, the Scottis Orginale began a type of Scottish anti-Arthurian tradition. They thus present an alternative and distinctly "Scottish" view of "history".
