St Kilda and the Wider World
Available in Stock
Once home to the most remote community in the British Isles and now a World Heritage Site, St Kilda is often seen as a tragedy; a doomed settlement that, after centuries of struggling to eke out a living on the edge of the Atlantic, finally abandoned the island in the evacuation of 1930. The landscape archaeologist Andrew Fleming questions those St Kilda ‘mythologies’ and ‘de-isolates’ the remote archipelago by setting its history within the wider context of northern Scotland. Off-mint.
