Description

Scotland’s history has been told many times, but never exclusively by its women.   This groundbreaking book takes a unique perspective on dramatic national events as well as ordinary life, as experienced by women down the centuries.   From the saintly but severe medieval Queen Margaret through Mary, Queen of Scots to First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, it encompasses women from all stations in life – not to mention fame and notoriety – and offers a tantalizing view of how they felt about and reacted to the world around them.

Drawing on a remarkably wide range of material, including court and kirk records, exchequer rolls and treasurers’ accounts, diaries and memoirs, chapbooks and newspapers, government reports and eye-witness accounts, this anthology brings vividly to life the half of history that for too long has been hidden or ignored.
