The language in this book suggests is it aimed at the youth market, but I believe it a nice overall look at the Later Prehistoric People of Scotland in an easily digested format, with copious illustrations to match the text. The best thing about this particular offering is that suggestions for various archaeological finds are offered, but no definitive statements are made, i.e. why people did what they did. There is no attempt to enter the mind of long-deceased inhabitants, but rather a presentation of the facts and some suggestions from recent theories allowing the reader to ponder. This approach to presenting history has always appealed to me.More extensive review to follow.
