Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (546 pages)
Author: F. Adam
Year: (1907) 2002
Written by Frank Adam, and originally published 1907, this is possibly the most famous book on Scotland published in the 20th century.
Frank Adam's 'Clans, Septs, and Regiments' is a classic reference work for all who have an interest in Scotland. When it first appeared in print, it was the first real attempt to present a complete study of the Highlands. Adam included large sections on the Highland clan system, the clans themselves, Highland surnames, Highland garb, tartan, Highland music, the Celtic languages in Britain, the destruction of the clan system, Highland regiments, Lowland regiments, the Highland clans after Culloden, and armorial bearings of the great Highland families. There are as well illustrations of the various stages and sorts of Highland dress, maps showing Scotland's development through the centuries, and colour illustrations of 114 tartans.
Still as useful as a detailed reference as it was a century ago, 'Clans, Septs, and Regiments' should be on every good Scottish researcher's shelf!
