Connecting Scotland’s History: A Scottish History Timeline Linked into 2,000 Years of World History
By (author) Anna Groundwater
This is a book that makes sense of the complexities of Scottish history in an insightful way, at a glance. Anna Groundwater has long experience of dealing with British, foreign and Scottish students, of all ages, who are bewildered by the huge task of trying to reconcile the development of Scotland as a nation with what they know of global history. Over time she has developed a way of presenting Scottish history, within a simple framework of dates, which students find helpful.
