6th century (AD): 500-599 (is it correct?)
9th century (AD): 800-899

1) The first inhabitants of Scotland were the Picts and the Scots. The former were of Celtic origin whereas the latter came from Ireland.
2) In 120 AD the Roman Emperor Hadrian had a wall built to keep the Scottish out. In the sixth century Christianity was introduced into Scotland by Irish missionaries.

10th they managed to repulse the Vikings.
4) In 1018 the Scottish King Malcolm II defeated the Northumbrians. His grandson became his successor as Duncan I. In 1040 Duncan was killed by his general, Macbeth. Macbeth ruled until 1057, when he was defeated by Duncanís son Malcolm III Canmore.
5) Macbeth spent many years in exile and eventually married an English princess. In the 13th century the English King Edward I invaded Scotland and seemed to have defeated the country.
