Description
 
Jan-Andrew Henderson (au). Did you know . . .  that most tartans date only from 1822? Or that the kilt was invented by a factory manager? Or that a Scot landed in America almost a century before Columbus? Or that Scotland had electric lighting 70 years before Edison patented the light bulb? Probably not, because Scotland has two secret histories. The image of the Scots as whisky-drinking, tartan-sporting, tight-fisted kilt wearers is famous throughout the world. That image is manufactured. Yet Scotlandís reputation for producing inventors, thinkers & explorers -- people who have changed the course of world history -- is nowhere near as prevalent. The scale of Scottish influence has been totally underestimated. This book reveals Scotlandís two secret histories. Illustrated.
