  • OUR NEW VERSION OF URQUHART AND GLENMORISTON HAS BEEN COMPLETED FOR THE FIRST TWO CHAPTERS:

    THE BOOK PROPER

    CHAPTER I.

    From basically the year dot to 1296. The focus is very much on the history of the people of Scotland, with a particular focus on the area of Urquhart and Glenmoriston. The early myths and legends of Scotland are covered, along with the history of the Picts and their struggles against the Scottish people, as well as against the Viking Norsemen. The occupiers of Urquhart Castle seem to change hands and it is interesting to note that no one called Urquhart is involved from what I can tell - Urquhart castle, incidentally, was considered one of the two most important castles in Scotland!

    OLDEN TIMES IN THE PARISH-BEFORE 1296.

    Pages 1 to 17



    CHAPTER II.

    This section is very much concerned with the constant intrusions of the English into Scotland, Scotland repelling it's attackers, only to be attacked again and again. Urquhart Castle falls to the English on two occassions and is recaptured. One one of those occassions, every Scottsman in Urquhart Castle died bravely on the battlefield trying to break the English siege, which had left them - the Scotts - in dire straits with too little food; everyone of them died a warriors death. On one occassion it's Scottish occupiers refuse to surrender the castle and are able to hold it even though the land was laid waste. In the last part, Scotland invades England, but is repelled and the Scottish King is taken prisoner, but is eventually released.

    ABOUT THIS BOOK

    In duplicating this book a number of challenges were found. Obviously the prime objective is to have an exact copy here. The reality is, it cannot be done. You cannot capture the smell, the feel, the page texture, the exact look of the letters - though we found "Times New Roman" to be the closest font in look to the font used in the book. However, we were quite successful with the page content and layout. However, in the book, like all quality books, the print is justified to both left and right margins. In html, ie web based language, text justification is difficult to achieve and many browsers have trouble supporting the text justifiaction command. Research also suggests, that for web page readability, justification to both margins is much more difficult to read and undesirable for that reason. So, our layout only basically differs from the original by virtue of not having the right hand side justification when viewed in most web browsers. Also, occassionally, when the page number appears at the bottom of the page, it may be on a different side to what it was originally. Although html documents can have subscripts and superscripts - we have duplicated them as well - doing so often causes the line to appear with a space above or below it in a web browser; the lines are still in order and all that, you just get this unnatural space. Also, converting from paper to web requires OCR software - this software ( and we use very expensive OCR software ) often gets things wrong with older type books, so much time is spent proofing and correcting every page of the OCR copy. All-in-all, I believe this to be an accurate, well formatted and readable version of " Urquhart and Glenmoriston ". We should be moving it out of BETA stage shortly.  Done out of Beta
