Book Description

22 Feb 2005
Designed throughout with colourful and detailed illustrations, Settlement and Sacrifice clearly describes the dramatic changes of the last thousand years BC. It contains in-depth discussions about distinctive features of the archaeological record and emphasises that the lives recorded by these remains were those of ordinary people living in and changing the landscape around them. Included in the book are specially commissioned illustrations which show how these people may have lived, as well as a list of the later Bronze and Iron Age sites which can be seen around Scotland. This book is part of a newly updated edition of the acclaimed Making of Scotland series produced by Historic Scotland and Birlinn which provides lively, accessible and up-to-date introductions to key themes and periods in Scottish history and prehistory.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Introduction 8 Nov 2003
Format:Paperback
Part of the Canongate series of Scottish histories, this one covers the period from c.1500BC to 200AD. Well laid out, beautifully illustrated, very accessible, this series is an excellent introduction to Scottish history and should prove a dynamic stimulus of interest.

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise and informative 24 Aug 2011
By Sile VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The language in this book suggests is it aimed at the youth market, but I believe it a nice overall look at the Later Prehistoric People of Scotland in an easily digested format, with copious illustrations to match the text.

The best thing about this particular offering is that suggestions for various archaeological finds are offered, but no definitive statements are made, i.e. why people did what they did. There is no attempt to enter the mind of long-deceased inhabitants, but rather a presentation of the facts and some suggestions from recent theories allowing the reader to ponder. This approach to presenting history has always appealed to me.
