Summary
"This book charts the immense environmental and cultural changes that took place in Scotland from the end of the last Ice Age to the arrival of the Vikings over 9000 years later. After the final disappearance of the ice, sea levels rose and fell and woodland covered the greater part of the country. Elk, wild cattle, brown bear, boar, red deer and beaver inhabited woodlands and upland moors. Then came human settlers: hunter-gatherers followed by successive communities of farmers and metalworkers, and latterly the Romans. The Scots, Picts and other peoples of Early Historic Scotland are also considered. This book unites environmental and archaeological approaches to show how changing natural conditions and the sequence of cultural impacts shaped Scotland's distinctive succession of landscapes." "The seventeen authors are archaeologists, geographers and environmental scientists, writing for a wide readership, including students and general readers. The book is extensively illustrated with maps and photographs and this paperback edition includes a new guide to further reading."--Jacket
