Summary

Explores the archaeological, social and cultural history of Glasgow from the earliest settlers to the present day.

Explores the archaeological, social and cultural history of the eponymous city, from the earliest Pict settlers 10,000 years ago through its emergence as a nineteenth-century powerhouse of industry and struggles with poverty, unemployment and disaffection to its present-day incarnation as a hub of cutting-edge digital and start-up businesses.

NOTE : There is a fold-out map in the middle of the book. This would be vulnerable to damage but the book would work without it.

There is discussion of sexually transmitted infections and virgin girls being sold to men as cures for various maladies.
