Borders, The: History from Earliest Times (Apr)

Borders, The: History from Earliest Times


In this acclaimed book, Alistair Moffat tells the story of a part of Scotland that has played a huge role in the nation’s history and moved poets, painters and writers as well as ordinary people for hundreds of years. The hunter-gatherers who first penetrated the virgin interior, the Celtic warlords, the Romans, the Northumbrians and the Reivers, who dominated the Anglo-Scottish borderlands for over 300 years, have all had their part to play in the constantly evolving life of the area. It is the people of a place that make its history and Alistair Moffat’s book is a testament to those who have made the Borders their home, and who have created the traditions, myths and romance that define it so strongly.
