This informative and entertaining slide lecture begins with the earliest references and images relating to tartan cloth and moves through the heart of the dramatic history of this colorful and sometimes controversial fabric. Once primarily a type of pattern woven and worn by Scottish highlanders, tartan was outlawed by the British government after the Jacobite Rebellion in 1745. The story of how tartan eventually became a national symbol of Scotland is full of fascinating characters and stories.
