Villages of Fife by Raymond Lamont-Brown

Book Description

This work is an account of the people of Fife and their village and Hamlet communities from medieval times to the present day. Fife has seen many major events in Scottish history, and this work covers the places, parishes and people; their leaders, labour and leisure and the part all strata of village society played in the vibrant county with the pretentions of a kingdom. From Kingbarns to Saline and from Wormit to Dysart, this work reveals the myriads of villages and how they developed, showing how they are as alive today as they ever were, still contributing to the ongoing story of Fife. It covers all of Fife's villages and hamlets and is arranged in a reader-friendly A-Z format, allowing each settlement to be located and enjoyed separately or as part of a wider specific area.
