Description for Aberdeen Beyond the Granite Paperback. Now known as the oil capital of Europe, this description does little justice to Aberdeen's rich history of great artists and poets, architects and adventurers, writers and revolutionaries. Aberdeen Beyond the Granite explores the unseen side of Aberdeen from the easily forgotten days before the discovery of North Sea oil, to the present day. Num Pages: 192 pages, Illustrations (some col.). BIC Classification: 1DBKSH; WQH. Category: (G) General (US: Trade). Dimension: 242 x 178 x 13. Weight in Grams: 262.

Ian R Mitchell recognises his hometown is an often underloved place, but in Aberdeen: Beyond the Granite he sets out an overwhelming case as to why this sentiment is thoroughly undeserved. An Aberdonian born and bred, Mitchell has lived in Glasgow for almost four decades. Returning to his roots, he delves into Aberdeen's rich and often unseen history and culture from an exile's perspective, revealing a proudly unique city, home to the world's oldest surviving company, the UK's oldest newspaper, and perhaps Britain's oldest Italian restaurant!
