    Scotland's history was not always one with British
    history, and is set perhaps to become more separate
    again. Scotland was at one stage an important player
    within Europe and also within what was the British
    Empire. However, the understanding of Scottish
    history has for centuries been obscured by the
    dominance of English or `British' history.


    Drawing on her years of experience in teaching history
    students who are bewildered by the daunting task of
    tying Scottish dates and events into what they know of
    the wider world, Anna Groundwater has developed a
    comparative timeline which acts as an accessible point
    of reference.


    Standard textbooks can explain specific events, but
    students repeatedly complain about becoming bogged
    down in excessively detailed reading. Scotland Connected
    is a user-friendly and thought-provoking guide to the
    key events in Scottish, British and world history, readily
    demonstrating the connections between the three.
