The Kings of Celtic Scotland examines the formation and development of the early medieval Scottish Kingdom. Using a study of the individual monarchs, from the 9th to 11th centuries, the supremacy of the Scots in northern Britain is placed in the wider context of Irish and English history. This study uses family history and literature in conjunction with political narrative and places medieval Celtic history into the tradition of Scottish historical research.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Hudson's meticulously reconstructs the reign of every king with pretensions to rule over the Scots as a whole, from Cinaed in the mid-ninth century to Lilach mac Gillai Coemgain in the mid-eleventh. His scholarship is impeccable, his conclusions uniformly sensible. As those familiar with the period will know, sources are exceedingly slim for these centuries in the north, and Hudson's success in disentangling the ifinitely complex web of events to fashion a coherent narrative is much to be applauded. It is an intelligent and thoughtful work, one that will need to be taken seriously by specialists in the field."-Speculum-A Journal of Medieval Studies
"[B]enjamin Hudson has made a fine effort in producing a well-researched and informative examination of a generally neglected area of Scottish history."-European Studies Journal
"Kings of Celtic Scotland is an important work that should find its way onto the bookshelf of every serious student of medieval Scotland and leave its mark upon the historiography of early Scotland for decades to come."-Albion
"Hudson's scholarship is thorough and his conclusions are sound: they should provoke a reassessment of this period of Scottish history. A study most suited for libraries serving graduate and faculty specialists in early Scottish and Celtic history."-Choice
