This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: Section II. Occurrences which took place in the Zetland Islands, from the time of their invasion by the Norwegians until their transference to the Crown of Scotland. In the vast interval between the time of Agricola and the year 875, when Harold Har- fagre, king of Norway, landed in Zetland, on his way to Orkney and the Hebrides, there are no authentic documents from which any intelligence can be gleaned, concerning the events which occurred in these distant islands. Ignorant of every thing but the mysteries of superstition, their rude inhabitants would be occupied almost solely in " provision for the day that was passing over them;" there would be nothing to interrupt the undeviating uniformity of the scene; and the history of one year wouldtherefore be the history of a century. Convinced of the truth of this fact, we can express but little regret at the penury of materials on which a relation of their transactions could be formed, and feel no wish to remove the veil by which they are covered. Mr PiNKERTON differs from Torfeus, as to the year when Harold subdued these islands. He thinks this event could not have taken place before 910, and his reasoning on this subject is very plausible. Inquiry, vol. ii. p. 295. Previous to the actual invasion of these islands kby Harold, it appears that the Norwegians had been in the practice of visiting Zetland in considerable numbers, and had actually settled in it. When Harold ascended the throne, a great part of Norway was divided into small states, the sovereigns of which acknowledged him as their liege lord; but Harold was not satisfied with so partial an influence over them, and, after a series of battles, reduced the whole to subjection, and resolved the government of the country into one absolute monarchy.
