Description

Scotland's Stone of Destiny is the most famous symbol of both Scottish nationhood and the British monarchy. This is the first full-length, fully researched and illustrated study of its history, mythology, and cultural significance. The author traces the origin, evolution, and function of myths surrounding the Stone, and the ancient prophecy that gives the Stone its name. The Stone's much-disputed authenticity is assessed, and its rich symbolism discussed.show more
