About the book:

Customs can be well-known or obscure, old or new, yet all play an important part in society and their study rewards us with fascinating insights into our culture and history. Sheila Livingstone's wide-ranging and meticiously researched book details the customs associated with such topics as weddings and work, birth and death, childhood and courtship, health and illness, food and drink. Extracts from classic works of Scottish literature are used throughout to illustrate the subjects discussed. Customs can be traced back to the time of the Druids, Celts, or Romans, and wherever possible the origins of these ancient traditions are given.
