          The list of brickmarks appearing below was taken from Graham Douglas’s A Survey of Scottish Brickmarks, published in 1986 by the University of Strathclyde’s Industrial Archaeology Survey. The Survey is now defunct and original copies of this report are quite difficult to obtain; at least one is available from the Scottish National Library in Edinburgh.

          Feel free to download these data. I have bolded examples that I have found at historic sites in southern New Mexico. If you have examples of these bricks in your sites, I would appreciate it if you would contact me (nackerly@zianet.com) directly since I’m working on a survey of Scottish bricks in Southwestern historic sites and would love to incorporate your data in this overview.
