Few places in the British Isles are unmarked by human activity; even the wide open spaces of Scotland have been shaped by the labours of medieval peasants and by heavy industry. Illustrated with maps, drawings and aerial photographs, this book shows us how to read the landscape and detect the traces of settlement, farming, mineral extraction and leisure, revealing the ways in which, over the millennia, our forebears have wrought a living from the land and its resources.
