The central theme of Scottish history in the Roman Iron Age and the Early Historic centuries, taken together, has been regarded as the forging of new peoples and nations, alongside the waning of what we have been calling ‘fully civil’ society and the replacement of ‘farmer republics’ by kings and kingdoms. The second of these themes is the focus of this chapter. As a result of the efforts of seven hegemons over 127 years — three Aeðilfrithings, three Waerteras and a Mearns man — the story has been dominated by the Northumbrian and Pictish kingdoms and peoples.

Keywords:   Scottish history, Roman Iron Age, Northumbrian, Pictish, Aeðilfrithing, Waerteras, Mearns
