Scotland is named for the warlike tribe the Scottii, who are named for their Queen, Scota. In oral Irish and Scottish myths, Scota was an Egyptian princess, who escaped from a forced marriage to her father, Pharaoh Nectanebus. In my story, a rather gullible American Egyptologist is lured into treasure hunting, and finds the papyrus evidence behind the myth. This fully researched creative history will divulge the real origin of Scotland's coronation stone, the "Stone of Scone" which the British returned in 1999. You will also learn the hidden history of the origins of Celtic harps, Tartan fabric, DNA connections, and take an immaginary trip to Egypt 350 BCE.
