Recommended to James by: George Harris

A very short introduction to where the place names of Scotland come from. With a little tour round the peoples that lived in Scotland in the dark ages and a bit about the languages that they spoke. There are a few example etymologies of place names, but not a whole list of them, that would need to be a much longer work than this.
