From the origins of the tartans to the bitter subjugation of just 250 years ago, this is the surprising history of the Scottish clansmen.
They are the symbol of a nation proud, independent and brave. In their kilts and sporrans, against the unmistakable sound of the bagpipe, the Highland Clansman is known and admired throughout the world.
It was not always so. Just 250 years ago, Scottish law prohibited the wearing of tartans and the playing of the pipes. Violators were hunted down like animals, and the whole culture of the clans was reviled and despised. BATTLE OF THE CLANS is a feature-length look at the surprising history of the Highland Clansmen. Where did the bagpipe come from, and what do the various tartans represent? Why were the traditional soldiers of this ancient nation once honored, then despised, and now honored again? From the earliest historical accounts to today, this is a fascinating chronicle that goes beyond the myths to tell the true story of the Highland Clansman.
