More About the Author
Farm buildings are amongst the most characteristic features in the landscape of rural Scotland. They go further back in time than most other artifacts and since the layout and materials of earlier buildings are strictly related to their function and to their region they are the best available tools for interpreting the changing history of the regional environments. The authors use survey drawings, photographs and closely documented text in this approach to the history of the country. Numerous interesting sketches of cottage interiors and floorplans are also included. A very interesting read for the armchair historian and a study source for students of social and economic history.
