Summary
Trevor-Roper argues that while Anglo-Saxon culture spawned next to no myths, myth has played a central role in the development of Scottish identity. He explores three such myths - the political myth of the 'ancient constitution' of Scotland, the literary myth (Walter Scott, Ossian) and the myth of tartan and the kilt
