Churches, 1296-1603. This text is about the fortified churches

Cuthbert's Way Official Guide The official trail guide to
St Cuthbert's Way. Visiting a number of places closely associated
with the saint's life, this newly developed walk is full of
historical interest and natural beauty. St Cuthbert is said
to have started his ministry in Melrose in the Scottish Borders
and finished in Holy Island, and today's pilgrims will link
these places by a route which culminates in the Holy Island
causeway at Beal.
Abbey This is the first authoritative account of Scotland's
most famous medieval monastery.
Harvest of the Hills: Rural Life in... Northern England
and the Scottish Borders, 1400-1700. This illustrated environmental
history of rural life in Northern England and the Scottish Borders
in the late medieval and early modern periods explores the relationship
between society and the environment - the ways in which humans
responded to and used the environment in which they lived. The
author uses the orders and bylaws made by manorial courts to
build up a picture of how pastoral society in the Pennine, Lake
District and Border hills husbanded the resources of the uplands.
It offers an upland, pastoral paradigm of land use, the management
of common land, and the transition from medieval to early-modern
farming systems to balance the extensive literature on the agrarian
history of the lowlands.
