About the Author

He is responsible for honours and postgraduate courses in Viking Studies, Old Norse Studies, and the Material Culture of Anglo-Saxon, Norse and Celtic Scotland, and has organised a number of conferences and seminars on similar themes. His research to date has focused on Scandinavian place-names in Scotland and their value as indicators of cultural change.


'Masterly analysis . . . crystallised by the author's total command of the local place-nomenclature and his understanding of the Gaelic-Norse circumstances . . . it is hugely significant for future studies of the totality of the Viking impact on Scotland'

-- Barbara Crawford * Northern Scotland *
