      Extreme hard labour, extreme cold and wet, monotonous diet consisting of very little, very little animals to eat, next to zero cultural entertainment. Spend your entire life breaking your back tilling fields, trying to keep warm, and constantly covered in shit with no respite. 80% of your children die before reaching 5. Die in agony of a tooth abscess.

      Sounds wonderful.

          Mozart, Shakespeare, Da Vinci, Michelangelo, the Basilica, Plato....

          The fact that you can't think of anything outside of funko pops when you hear the word 'culture' doesn't mean its true for the rest of us.

        the Irish had a developed music and bardic tradition since prehistory, but the Scots seemingly lacked that. they were a very practical-minded race with little use for the artistic or mystical.

        nah i thought a bit and i know what it is, the original slab was longer and simmetrically placed with respect to the door, but at some point the right end broke and eventually crumbled. but luckily it seems enough of the slab survived the doorway didn't collapse. then someone repaired, taking out the broken bits and filling with 3 new rocks instead, you can even see them in the picture that they are a slightly different color.

        makes sense that it received some repairs in 2300 years

    Probably not that different from living in Scotland for the next thousand years or so, it was cold, wet and miserable. Life was significantly better further south.

    Other than the lack of Christianity or a writing system which didn't come until the 7th century AD it wasn't much different than medieval times or any time up to perhaps the early modern era. Petty tribes and warlords fighting each other and whipping peasants into plowing a farm field.

    Fun facts about Scotland:

    >the medieval Scottish nobility were a bunch of Norman lords who spoke English and ruled over an English-speaking population
    >barely anyone actually lived in the highlands and 80% of Scots lived in the lowlands which are just a continuation of north England
    >the Scots never won a single battle against England outside the Pyrrhic victory of Bannockburn
    >the kilt was of English origin
    >the bagpipe is found across Europe and is not native to Scotland
    >haggis are first mentioned in a 14th century English cookbook

      Also Scottish Gaelic was always known as “Erse” AKA “Irish” until the 20th century and its Scots counterpart called itself “Inglis” or “English”.

        >Scottish Gaelic was always known as “Erse” AKA “Irish” until the 20th century
        The most famous book from Scotland based off Gaelic poetry stated it was translated from the "Galic" and this was published in the 18th century

        So everyone in this thread can now ignore whatever you say since you have no knowledge of history

          First known use of “Erse” is 15th century
          Plus the Scottish insistence on confusing “Gaelic” with “Gallic” is a whole other field of moronation.

      Uh no. Until the 1600s places like even Stirling were majority Gaelic speaking sorry
      >80% of Scots lived in the lowlands which are just a continuation of north England
      Uh this is just incorrect
      >>the kilt was of English origin

    About the same as it is today, but without the technology, or the centuries of English spending and development that has made it into 'basically a modern country'.

        OK Nicola, just accept that you're no longer a part of Scottish politics and nobody gives a shit what your corrupt ass thinks any more. I know it'll be hard for you without being able to embezzle anymore, but you'll cope if you give it a shot.
