Abstract

The session will examine relations between England and Scotland in the later Middle Ages, a period of intermittent but persistent hostilities. The papers will look at some of the factors and imperatives which tended to perpetuate conflict, and which hindered the negotiation of any lasting peace settlement. Between them, the speakers will offer an overview, and two particular case studies. These latter will illustrate the issues and problems both at the level of national Crown policy, and at the more localised level of border politics, respectively.
