Shetland Vernacular Buildings 1600-1900

This book deals with the indigenous building traditions of Shetland, from the subsistence period in island history when the population relied on local resources to perfect their own indigenous style of construction. This vernacular style developed from a Norse heritage, incorporating wider British influences, and had similarities to cultures elsewhere. The volume deals with the whole built heritage, from roofed structures to enclosures, and for people, livestock, crops, and boats. The scope deals with the historical context, economic changes, construction methods, agriculture and fisheries, domestic life, and modes of use of the buildings themselves. The book will be of interest to archaeologists, ethnologists, architects, linguists, and historians.
