The Clans, Paperback Book


Now rewritten and redesigned to include photographs of objects from National Museums Scotland, "The Clans" explains how the idea of clanship developed and traces the one-time hostility between Highlanders and Lowlanders.

Readers can find out: where the clans were found; what the connection was with the Gaelic language; who the clan chiefs were, and how the clans were organised; how the clansmen dressed; where clan names came from; how to design their own tartan; and, how to write a praise poem or lament - and more.

The book also includes a list of websites and suggestions for places to visit.
