I had been looking forward to a book on the so called Britons who inhabited some of south west Scotland only to find the bulk of the book to be about the angles of north east England. One particularly disappointing feature was the late pick up of the Britons towards the end of the Roman occupation of England. Where did these people come from? There's a fairly solid likelihood that they were Picts. Couldn't this most likely possibility be explored? Over exaggerated claims about Bernician conquests were one thing but not to write about the Britons themselves in depth was disappointing.
