ALISTAIR MOFFAT: A TALE OF ZERO HOUR
A personal investigation into the history that surrounds us, from the historian and award-winning author of The Hidden Ways
A powerful, surprising exploration of Scotland's landscape and its hidden history

This journey through Lindisfarne is a meditation on the power of place, from the author of The Hidden Ways
In an epic narrative, sometimes moving, sometimes astonishing, always revealing, Moffat writes an entirely new history of Britain.
An ambitious and fascinating account of a nation's history
A fresh view of Scotland, using the boundary that divides the country both geologically and culturally as the basis for a fascinating and unique debate between two of the country's pre-eminent broadcasters
A story of the border: a place of beginnings and endings, of differences and similarities. This is also the story of an ancient place; where hunter-gatherers penetrated into the virgin interior, where Celtic warlords ruled, the Romans came but could not conquer, and where the glittering kingdom of Northumbria thrived.
A whirlwind tour of Scotland as it existed two thousand years ago. Moffat provides insight into old-Welsh speaking Celtic societies, defies the modern notion of geographical and linguistic constancy, and takes us back to when the Sons of Prophecy ruled and when the English kings of Bernicia held sway over vast swathes of what is now Scotland.
Only one period in history is immediately linked to the whole area of the Scottish and English Border country, and that is the time of the Reivers. Whenever anyone mentions Reiver, no-one hesitates to add Border. This book tells the tale of a land that was a no-man's-land but a land over which blood was shed on both sides of an invisible border.
A remarkable new piece of research that vividly uncovers Scotland's DNA Map. Since the opening of the Scottish Parliament there has been a revitalised interest in Scottish history and national identity. New technology and the mushrooming of genetic studies is spectacularly furthering our knowledge of who we are.
