Abstract

Did you know that Scotland began under an iceberg-laden sea near the South Pole hundreds of millions of years ago? The journey north of the land we now call Scotland is an astounding tale of great mountains, subtropical rainforests, coral reefs, howling deserts, ammonite-inhabited seas, high lava plateaus and scouring ice caps. The evidence for this journey is recorded in rocks, peat-bogs and lake muds. When the glaciers withdrew the new land was colonised by animals and plants but when hunters and farmers moved in mass extinction began. This beautifully illustrated guide, full of drawings, paintings and photographs, is an excellent introduction to Scotland’s earliest history.
