Categories: Scottish History


This category is managed by the Scotland Project
This category covers the period from when Galloway was absorbed into the Kingdom of Scotland, roughly from 1124, under Fergus. Prior to this time the region was held as a small Kingdom, the last bastion of the Pictish Brythonic-speaking parts in Scotland, descended from the Novantae recorded by Agricola. The people, called Galwegians, fought, almost continuously, with the Irish from the west and north and later the Norsemen. The lands were split, from their cousins in Wales, by the Saxon and Viking invasions through Northumbria.
