Abstract

England and Scotland remained formally at war throughout the later Middle Ages (save for two very short-lived peace treaties). This strand of three sessions will examine various aspects of Anglo-Scottish relations in this period, discussing how interactions between Englishmen and Scots, and their perceptions of each other, were shaped by intermittent but persistent hostilities. This second session will examine the clerical participants in the battle of Myton; the impact of the English Crown’s policy of treating the Scots as rebels on English perceptions of the Scots as a national enemy; and links of kinship, patronage and lordship across the border in the first half of the 16th century.
