A Coat of Arms has historically referred to the full 'Achievement', meaning the shield, side-ribbons (mantle), the helmet, and the crest above it. However this distinction has been lost over the centuries and today it is quite common for people to refer to the shield as the 'family crest' or 'coat of arms' as one and the same thing. It is not uncommon for words and phrases to have their meaning...

Standing armies were feared by the nobles and growing merchant classes who thought it gave the ruler too much power to have an army ready at all times. In most countries the land reserves or militia could be called up when a country was in danger. Owners...

The pattern is made with alternating bands of pre-dyed threads woven as both warp and weft at right angles to each other. Tartan is also known as plaid in North America, but in Scotland this word means a tartan cloth slung over the...

The tartan and Scotland are inextricably linked. This unique fabric pattern evokes the proud history of the Scots which remains palatable in Scotland to this day. However, Scotland has long had much more to offer to the world than the tartan, bagpipe, and sporran. Think of Silicon Glen, Dolly the Sheep, Kelvin, Adam Smith, even golf, all of which is only a handful of the incalculable number of...

Of Norman descent, they were one...
