The History of Scotland podcast follows Maria’s advice, and starts at the very beginning, with northern Britain in prehistoric times. And then we sweep all the way through Scotland’s glorious history – the seaborne ‘kingdoms’ of Dal Riada, Pictland, the coming of the Vikings and their lands of the Northern and Western Isles, to Alba and Scotland.  And we try to ignore the fact that I’m English, but look I do a good job of not taking sides in the Wars of Independence.

My History of Scotland podcast is for Members – go to the Become a Member page if you would like to join us on the side of light, truth and justice (and for a very reasonable fee I might say).

The podcasts have been moved, and are available on a separate History of Scotland site, just to avoid any implication that Scotland is part of England. So to see the podcasts or the maps associated with them, please follow the link to
