Nerdling,

How can you tell people they aren't related directly to real scots if you don't know their bloodlines.....I'm getting the feeling that you want to crush people's idea of being related to a scot....

Post roman alba, the country north of Hadrian's wall, was divided among four groups,A scot isn't even a scottish person, there are four groups, they were picts, scots, and the britons. These three were of celtic origin. then the angles who settled in lothian, which were part of the 5th century teutonic incasion of britian that scattered the native britons into strathclyde.

scots migrated to alba from northern ireland, norsemen from scandinavia began to attack the northen coast and islands of alaba, transforming forever the character of the hebrides, the orkneys and the shetlands. the picts grew tired and were unable to resist a claim to the pictish throne made in 843 by brought the lothians under scottish rule, and kenneth macalpin, the king of the dalriadic scots. the celts and the saxons in 1058 were brought in gaelic as the court language, and they tried to introduce roman catholic beliefs to the celtic clergy which brough feudalism to celtic scotland.

right: The irish scot solumba came to alba in 563 and establishe da small monastery on the tiny island of Iona. He gradually persuaded the pagan picts to renounce their druidic beliefs and embrace christianity.

There are many people from around the world that came to Scotland, interbreeded at one time or another, cross breeded, ect, it doesn't make anyone more of less a scot.

How would you define an American if it was 2000 years down the road??

I'm actually kind of insulted that you think i'm not related to a campbell, just because you can prove that your bloodline can be traced back to the vikings doesn't make any other person more or less scottish related.
what the hells your problem man... geez, way to kill the spirit.

Hi everyone. I have Scottish ancestry and can tell that my genes are definitely different than most people here in the southern US in South Carolina. It's hot here. In the late fall, winter and/or early spring, it will be warm enough for me to wear a short sleeve shirt while everyone else around here is wearing a heavy coat or sweater. Someone even once joked about not seeing me with a jacket on that I must be "the last of the Vikings". I thought that was amusing until one of my relatives told me that I might be related to the Vikings. I didn't realize that was a possibility. I believe I would like to travel to Scotland one day. I heard someone say it's too cool, what are the normal daytime highs in Fahrenheit? I'm often too hot here in South Carolina. I definitely need the air conditioning or else I'm covered in sweat just from being outdoors.
