Scots have made a huge contribution to the world - you only have to look at a tea towel listing the famous sons and daughters of the saltire to see that. Surprisingly, there is much that has taken place without its influence. This book shows what could have happened if history was Scottish. Famous figures and major events that have made an impact throughout the history of the world are seen through a uniquely comedic Caledonian perspective. The whole clanjamfrie of attributes associated with being Scottish - pawky, canny, contrary, gallus, aggressive, idealistic and maudlin - are used to revisit battles, assassinations, explorations and inventions across the continents and centuries. Welcome to an alternative world, where all history is Scottish!
