Ancient Scotland by Ian Zaczek

Ancient Scotland
by Ian Zaczek [941.1 Zac]

This is a Scottish history book with a lot of photos. Each chapter covers a different region of Scotland and provides a short history at beginning of the chapter. After the introduction to the area, there are full page photos of particular locations in the region with a paragraph or so about it on the opposite page. The photos are beautiful and more meaningful as you read the history of each place. It's a nice visual history of Scotland, but if you are looking for a more in depth history book, I'd recommend Scotland: The Story of a Nation by Magnus Magnusson. Id recommend it if you are interested in travel or history. -- recommended by Kristen A. - Gere Branch Library [ see Kristen's Reviewer Profile and more of her reviews ]

[If you like the photographic histories you may also like Heritage of Scotland: A cultural history of Scotland and Its People by Nathaniel Harris andThe great castles of Britain and Ireland by Lise Hull.]
