Landscape of Scotland by Caroline Wickham-Jones

Book Description

Drawing on a whole range of factors, and distilling information into concise summaries, this book makes many fascinating observations on how the landscapes of Scotland were used by their inhabitants from prehistory to recent times. From lochs, coastlines and waterways, to highlands, forests and fields, this book examines how the lie of the Scottish land holds countless archaeological sites both above and below ground: farmsteads, castles, standing stones and many more. The sites are explained in terms of how and why they sprung up, for human, geological and climactic reasons. The book describes how the wealth of the land was extracted and exploited through mining and industry; how communities interacted with each other through trade and warfare; and how religion and burial were performed.
