Description

From a collection of 57 albumen photographs of rock and glacial formations in the United Kingdom, Europe, North America and Asia. Glencoe is the site of the masacre of the MacDonald clan by William of Orange's government forces in February 1692. The Campbells and MacDonalds had long been enemies, and the Campbells sided with the government, murdering 38 MacDonalds; many more fled into the snow.
