Some chapters look at developments within broad ethnological eras, while others focus on particular aspects of a theme. The geographical and chronological coverage of the volume is wide, from the Northern Isles to the South-West, the eastern Lowlands to the western Highlands, and across the centuries from the medieval period to the twenty-first century.
