The story of tartan is told from the medieval love of display to the Victorian invention of exclusive clan identity. Along the journey, the history of the Highlands and its society is brought vividly to life. In the third edition of this classic and best-selling book there are: • 16 new pictures • details on women’s Highland habit • revelations following recent dye tests on a kilt allegedly worn by Bonnie Prince Charlie A full-colour section on individual clans enables the reader to find their own tartan and Scottish family history.
