The session will examine relations between England and Scotland over the later Middle Ages, a period of intermittent but persistent hostilities. The papers will examine some of the political, military, and social factors and imperatives which shaped the course of Anglo-Scottish relations, and the means and mechanisms by which these relations were conducted. Between them, the speakers will offer three case studies, illustrating the issues and problems both at the level of national Crown policy, at the more localised level of border politics, and the interaction between the two.
