Reseña del editor:

By bringing evidence from heraldry, DNA and place names to bear and by insisting on feasible time lines this two volume work (with accompanying CD) exposes many of the myths which still mask the origin stories of so many Scottish Clans - and offers far more interesting, exciting and accurate replacements. The specific political situations which made the creation of these myths necessary or desirable are explained. In order to achieve all this a fresh understanding of the "clan" has been required - and is provided - and radical theories have been developed regarding Pictish place names and the origins of heraldry, while the Norse Sagas have been placed in a new and viable timeframe, with many contradictions and errors resolved. Shakespeare's "MacDuff" is identified, as is the Orkneyinga Saga's "Karl Hundisson". To aid understanding the accompanying CD includes a family tree showing the inter-relationships of the participants and a library of Google Earth placemarks allowing the reader to find all the key locations - many of them quite obscure - effortlessly. Full colour illustrations of Heraldic arms add to the richness of the experience while the Bibliography benefits from being "searchable". The work focuses on the period of the "House of Canmore" dynasty (and does not extend beyond 1316), but ancestral lines are traced back, in some cases nearly 1000 years further. The ancestors of the Siol Alpin clans are discussed in detail back to the year 810. Names considered in this Volume: Abernethy Bisset Calder Campbell Chattan Davidson Farquharson Fraser of Lovat Lamont MacArthur MacBain MacDonald MacDougall MacDowall MacDuff MacGillivray Macintyre Mackay Mackenzie Mackintosh MacLaren Maclean of Dochgarroc MacPhail MacQueen Macpherson MacMillan MacSween McThomas Munro Oliphant Shaw Stewart Wemyss Also examined and explained in a very new way: Pictish Placenames The Origins of the Clan System The Origins of Heraldry The early life of St Patrick The History of Norway, Orkney and Normandy (700-1030) Scottish Politics (800-1057) Manuscript 1467
