IN SEARCH OF SCOTLAND. Edited by Gordon Menzies. Polygon pound;12.99.

This is the companion book to the BBC Scotland television series that started in February.

Scotland's leading historians have combined to produce a work that covers 10,000 years of Scotland's history from the Stoe Age to the present, charting the impact of the Celts, Picts, Romans, Irish, Vikings and English. The great and the good figure prominently but this story, says the publisher, is also about ordinary people who lived and loved, worked and died, most leaving no record at all.
