it just dawned on me that when speaking of scotland proper, the term ancient is somewhat of a misnomer. more likely to call it early middle ages? nonetheless, the university of glasgow came about around 1450. even older is a repository of various knowledges primarily written in latin, and perhaps, if i remember correctly, old scots. i can't place the name right now, something to do with the old mactyre clans (mac sor?) and early christianity. the picts and kelts were more barbaric and unruly - certainly not known for the tempered activity of reading and acquiring written knowledge. i'll track this down ...
i had it bookmarked not too long ago, but evidently was purged. sorry about the goose chase.
