From the 15th to the early 17th century, the Scottish borderlands were the site of almost constant conflict between England and Scotland and the Borders people suffered at the hands of marauding armies wrecking crops and livestock. They responded by reiving – raiding over the border, taking cattle and supplies to ensure their own survival. Alistair Moffat tells the stories of the reivers and their exploits, and includes a selection of their Border Ballads.
