The timescale is vast: from pre-history with Skara Brae through Romans and Vikings and sundry kings and queens right up to herring lasses and shipbuilding on the Clyde. A good mixture. And a long journey. There are 14 topics in all, each with a main picture to colour in and bring to life. And going with each main outline picture there are accompanying detailed pictures, also to be filled with colour.
Like all the other titles in the series, this is not only a colouring book. Short bursts of text place each picture in history and give some key facts. “This is very informative”, said an early reader (an adult not a child).
