Professor Barrow takes up the history of a Scotland which already has the beginnings of a clear sense of identity and a successful expansion policy. Emphasising in particular the kingdom's political growth and the evolution of a distinct Scottish nation, Professor Barrow narrates the story of Scotland's remarkable Medieval kings and their development of a kingship and the institutions of government which provided the unity and administration to fend off Edward I's onslaughts in the thirteenth century.

This was a text for one of my first or second year courses at Aberdeen. That makes it twenty years since I've read it, so it was time for a second read. Read full review
