Settlement and Sacrifice

Designed throughout with colourful and detailed illustrations, Settlement and Sacrifice clearly describes the dramatic changes of the last thousand years BC. It contains in-depth discussions about distinctive features of the archaeological record and emphasises that the lives recorded by these remains were those of ordinary people living in and changing the landscape around them. Included in the book are specially commissioned illustrations which show how these people may have lived, as well as a list of the later Bronze and Iron Age sites which can be seen around Scotland. This book is part of a newly updated edition of the acclaimed Making of Scotland series produced by Historic Scotland and Birlinn which provides lively, accessible and up-to-date introductions to key themes and periods in Scottish history and prehistory.
