Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The spectacular Bronze Age remains on Orkney, the imposing Iron Age hill forts and brochs, the Antonine Wall built by the Romans—these are but a few of the best-known surviving monuments in which Scotland is so rich. This updated edition of Ian Armits classic guide to Scotlands archaeological heritage is complete with detailed instructions as to how to access every major site.

Book News Annotation:

Armit offers a narrative of Scotland's past anchored on monuments that the public can visit. His first chapter summarizes the entire period up to 1000 AD, and subsequent chapters focus on particular eras and structures within it. Among them are tombs of the first farmers, forts and farms of the Iron Age, the Roman interlude, and the Vikings. He includes map coordinates and directions to the sites, and in many cases photographs so visitors will know when they have arrived. Distributed in the US by Trafalgar Square Publishing.

Thomas Kirby, September 13, 2007 (view all comments by Thomas Kirby)
The book has a nice description of prehistory/early historic sites in Scotland, with photos and drawings. I found the book to be enjoyable, even though it turned out to be more of a travel guide than a history book.

If I was in Scotland, with the opportunity to go see these places, I would have enjoyed the book more.
