Book Description

Nov 1996 Exploring Scotland's Heritage
This work is part of the "Exploring Scotland's Heritage" series which provides an introduction to the archaeological heritage of Scotland. Each book tells the story of one part of Scotland, tracing human impressions on the landscape from World War II relics back to the earliest pioneer days of settlement. The details are filled in by a gazetteer of interesting and well-preserved monuments. This volume looks at the archaeological heritage of Orkney, and examines the defences of the last World War back through windmills and water-mills, houses and castles, Viking-age churches and iron-age brochs, to the well-preserved houses and tombs of people who lived more than 5000 years ago.

Product Description

From the Inside Flap

Exploring Scotland’s Heritage Series provides an up-to-date and authoritative introduction to the rich archaeological heritage of Scotland. Each book tells the story of one part of Scotland, tracing human impressions on the landscape from World War II relics back to the earliest pioneer days of settlement. The details are filled in by a gazetteer of the most interesting and best preserved monuments and each new edition also features a full-colour Excursions section with easy to follow trips.

Orkney is a paradise for those interested in the past. The trail can be followed from World War II back through wind-mills and water-mills, beautiful houses, formidable castles, Viking-age churches, iron-age brochs, to the astoundingly well-preserved houses and tombs of people who lived more than five thousand years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars We are Orkney-bound! 19 April 2014

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Ritchie name is well-known in Scottish archaeology. This book covers all inhabited times and places thoroughly. An "official" guide, it contains many drawings and maps, in addition to many black and white and color photos.

Published in 1996, it is about the newest guide we could find. It is a fine addition to our guidebooks.
