Northern England and Southern Scotland in the Central Middle Ages

Edited by Keith J. Stringer, Angus J.L. Winchester Boydell Press, 2017 384 pages Hardback, £60.00 ISBN: 9781783272662

In 1237, the Treaty of York delineated the Anglo-Scottish border. Yet both before and after this date, the zone around the border was identified as a region unto itself. Society, economy, culture, identity and law all developed along slightly different lines than in each area’s larger political unit.

This collection of essays explores facets of life in southern Scotland and northern England during the 12th and 13th centuries. It originated in a 2012 conference organised by the late Richard Britnell, who wanted to foster a community of historians looking beyond traditional political boundaries.
