Little Explorers Scotland Then and Now

A drawing of people outside a castle, some waving flags, some in costume

Turn back time and introduce little explorers to Scotland’s past through some of its most famous historical places. Explore Orkney’s Skara Brae with Stone Age villagers, command Urquhart Castle with Robert the Bruce, return to Jarlshof in Shetland after a Viking raid, feast at Stirling Castle with King James V, guard the Antonine Wall with Roman soldiers, and try to capture Edinburgh Castle with the Jacobites. 

With double fold-out sturdy pages, children can discover what key places in Scotland’s history look like now, then reveal how they might have looked hundreds, or even thousands, of years ago.
