Life at the Time of Columba

INTRODUCTION
In the time of Columba back in the 6th century Scotland wasn’t the same as today. Columba founded lots of monasteries to let people learn about God. He founded one on Iona in Scotland.
PEOPLE IN SCOTLAND
The Picts, Gaels and Britons. The Picts are warlike and very vicious. They speak a welsh like language. They lived in the North and East of Scotland. The Britons spoke welsh too. The Gaels spoke Gaelic and were Christian and warlike. They lived in western Scotland and they came from Ireland. They had very neat art and carvings. Columba crowned the king of the Gaels.
EVERYDAY LIFE
They lived in big round houses, and they ate meat and vegetables and barley. They used sheep wool to make clothes. Some houses were on top of water.
