DNA evidence, archeology, analysis of migrations, and public and family records show twelfth century Semitic roots
Elizabeth Caldwell Hirschman and Donald N. Yates.

Published 2007 by McFarland & Company in Jefferson NC .
Written in English.

About the Book

"Much traditional history of Scotland rests on fundamental interpretive errors perpetuated to maintain an origin as Celtic, Christian. This equation of Scotland with Celtic culture in popular (and academic) imagination has buried a more accurate understanding of its history. Research includes census records, archaeological artifacts, cemetery inscriptions, religious seals, coinage, noble genealogies, portraiture, and place names"--Provided by publisher.
