Early Peoples

EARLY PEOPLES

Not much is really known about the early peoples in this area. We, in our arrogance, refer to them as Primitive man, and later, Beaker people. No one can say with certainty where and when these early people of Scotland are thought to have come from originally, but we can speculate that these early settlers were descended from people who had left Ireland, who in their turn had left the Iberian Peninsula, who, in their turn themselves were descended from peoples of the Middle East, who in turn were descended from people from the African continent. They may have even come about 10000 years ago when the staple diet may have been left over Tyrannus Saurus Rex!
