Synopsis

The Clans by Frances Jarvie, Gordon Jarvie

Now rewritten and redesigned to include photographs of objects from National Museums Scotland, The Clans explains how the idea of clanship developed and traces the one-time hostility between Highlanders and Lowlanders. Readers can find out: where the clans were found; what the connection was with the Gaelic language; who the clan chiefs were, and how the clans were organised; how the clansmen dressed; where clan names came from; how to design their own tartan; and, how to write a praise poem or lament - and more. The book also includes a list of websites and suggestions for places to visit.
