Ian Armit, writer of Beyond the Brochs: Changing Perspectives on the Later Iron Age in Atlantic Scotland,Scotland's Hidden History, The archaeology of Skye and the Western Isles and Towers in the North: The Brochs of Scotland, brings his vast knowledge to present this book anyone interested in Highland history can enjoy. Loads with colour pictures, B & W and ariel photos, he covers the brochs and vitrified stone fortresses that cover a lot of Scotland. He has detailed drawings of wheelhouses, insides of a broch and weems, showing how these operated as a part of Celtic daily life. A wonderful book recommended to those wishing a bit more on Scotland.
This book fulfils a difficult task: it is written for the general reader (so it's accessible for the likes of me), but it doesn't compromise by simplifying complexities. Its subject coverage is wide, so it's comprehensive: and it's up-to-date. A good buy.
