Timelines for Scotland (Scottish) History:

The first part looks at Scotland from the mists of time to AD 350. During that time, Scotland was invaded by the Romans (in part at least) and what followed were years of conflict and peace between the natives and the conquerors.

The second part takes Scotland from the time of St Ninian to the Viking attacks and their conquest of part of Scotland. Along the way, we have the birth & death of St Columba and the civil war between the Picts.

The third part takes Scotland from A.D. 806 when the Monastery of Iona sacked by Norsemen through the lesser known, but still important kings, such as Donald, Edgar and Constantine. In addition the real life King McBeth, who will be well known to readers of Shakespeare, appears on the scene. This section finishes with the death of Edgar in 1107.
