This series provides a survey of the major aspects of Scotland's history and culture. Each of the colourful volumes explores a single theme, presenting information on a distinctive facet of the country's rich heritage whilst encouraging the reader to discover more. Buildng up a comprehensive picture of the facts which have made up Scottish life across the centuries, each text is accompanied by illustrations and a glossary. This volume takes a panoramic view of the range of houses which cover the land and lend it a unique Scottish identity. From the earliest stone-built houses surviving in Europe to the stone-built castellated towers of the 16th-century to the brick-built workers' cottages of the 19th and 20th centuries, it details the range of homes that not only recreate a vision of past lives but also colour the Scottish landscape of today.
