Setting out to show that Game of Thrones is rooted in Scottish history, David C Weinczok draws parallels between the history of this country and that of Westeros.
This book helps a fantastical world become even more of a reality.
It shows how Moat Cailin is inspired by Stirling Castle, and The Wall by Hadrian’s Wall.
A must read for any Game of Thrones fanatic, with an interest in history and the genesis of the epic television series.
