A survey of the major aspects of Scotland's history and culture. Each volume in the series explores a single theme, presenting information on a distinctive facet of the country's rich heritage whilst encouraging the reader to discover more. This volume combines an introduction to the art of heraldry with the wider picture of heraldic art in practice, showing its appearance in different forms within Scotland over the past centuries. It disentangles the complex code which heraldic devices represent, showing the origins and the rules which cover its expression. Heraldic panels in sculpture and other forms the arms of the Scottish monarchs, armorial devices to ensure ownership and demonstrate lineage and alliances - all these are shown in full colour demonstrating as the authors proclaim "the happy marriage of man and symbol".
