Fortress Scotland is a site-by-site history of fortification in Scotland. Covering the period from prehistoric times through to the 18th century Jacobite rebellions, this lavishly illustrated first volume in the series covers the Findhorn valley and Moray lowlands. Detailed descriptions of the sites today, and analysis of their development over time are accompanied by the stories of the families who built and lived in them. The local power-plays that took place during critical periods such as the many royal minorities are placed in their national context. The coming of the Romans, the establishment of the kingdoms of the Picts, the formation of the realm of Scotland, the century of civil war and rebellion that led to the establishment of the “Canmore Dynasty,” Bruce and the Wars of Independence, the rise of the Stewarts, Queen Mary and the Reformation, the Covenant and the Jacobite rebellions all form the backdrop to this history. Essential reading for those interested in fortified sites and local history, Fortress Scotland brings together years of research into the only book of its type you will ever need.
