Reviews

An ambitious and wide-ranging but closely argued and well referenced account of the complex interplay, over more than eight centuries, between castellated architecture in its original and revival forms and changing concepts of national identity in Scotland ... The authors are to be congratulated on maintaining an appropriate balance and pace across such a broad chronological span and such an intricately interwoven set of themes. * The Castle Studies Group *
