    Abstract:
    This paper examines the twelfth-century Latin poem known as the Song of the Death of Somerled and argues that contrary to previous interpretations the action in the poem covers two separate events eleven years apart; a successful attack on Glasgow in 1153 and a the final battle in which Somerled dies in 1164.
