Island of Kerrera: Mirror of History. By Hope MacDougall of MacDougall (sister of our Thirtieth Chief)
Island of Kerrera: Mirror of History. By Hope MacDougall of MacDougall (sister of our Thirtieth Chief). An intimate history of a MacDougall island and its people. This is a book about how our clan’s people lived and the events which occurred on a island which has been a clan MacDougall island for most of the past 900 years. This book is not a history of piobaireachd, nor is it rightly characterized as an instructional manual (though it does contain some instructions on the embellishments used in piobaireachd). It is perhaps better characterized as a reference book.

Mirrors have had a significant impact on mankind. In the earliest of times, before mirrors existed, people probably only had a sense of what they looked like from reflection of pools of water. Evidence has been found from ancient Chinese bronze mirrors, that they were really shallow jars made of bronze that contained water and could reflect the person’s face. As time progressed, mirrors improved, yet the earliest of mirrors were quite imperfect. It is believed the first mirrors were made around 8000 . from naturally produced volcanic glass, such as obsidian, a polished stone.
