The Men of Warre examines the clothes, weapons and accoutrements of the Scots at war between 1460 and 1600 using a wide range of sources to present a clear picture of the what the highland and lowland Scots were wearing and fighting with in this crucial and turbulent period in Scotland’s history. Jenn Scott has carefully drawn together a myriad of sources to present a picture of the Scots from the late medieval to the cusp of the early modern period and the material culture of war.

“[A] lot of information about the medieval to renaissance clothes worn by the Scots, mostly arms and "war rainment" (armor and associated gear) but also clothes for social occasions… The text is full of these details. It's the strength of the book.”
