The Oldest Scottish Book Remaining in Scotland (Circa 1025) is an eleventh century illuminated version of the Psalms of King David preserved in the Center for Research Collections at Edinburgh University Library. The Celtic Psalter has Celtish and Pictish illuminations. The origin of the psalter is a mystery but experts believe it was probably produced by monks in Iona, who were also associated with the making of the Book of Kells.
If you have Scottish and/or Irish ancestry AND red hair, you probably also have VIKING ancestry, according to a new study. The director for Nordic Studies at the University of the Highlands and Islands says red hair is modern evidence of the influence of the ancient Vikings in Celtic lands.
