Winter Words Festival: David Greig
Columba’s Bones is the debut novel from playwright David Greig, which explores a fascinating clash of cultures and religions that played an important part in the shaping of Scotland. It is the fourth book in the Polygon series, Darkland Tales.
Columba’s Bones is set on Iona in 825 and is the story of the aftermath of a ninth century Viking raid, a ‘heist gone wrong’.
