“Senchus” is a blog created by me, Tim Clarkson, as a personal notepad for things Scottish and medieval.
I graduated with a PhD in medieval history in 2003. My dissertation’s title was ‘Warfare in Early Historic Northern Britain’. Prior to this I gained an MPhil in archaeology with a research thesis entitled ‘The Solway Region AD 400-650 and the Kingdom of Rheged’. Since completing my doctoral thesis I have continued to pursue my interests in early medieval history as an “independent scholar”.
I have written five books:
The Picts: a History
The Men of the North: the Britons of Southern Scotland
The Makers of Scotland: Picts, Romans, Gaels and Vikings
Strathclyde and the Anglo-Saxons in the Viking Age (October 2014)
