The Last Years of a Frontier: A History of the Borders During the Reign of Elizabeth I
Media: DATA CD - 1 CD (328 pages)
Author: D. Tough
This book by D.L.W. Tough put in the author's own words, "This book attempts a picture of the Borders as they were in their last years, an explanation of their state, and a narrative of the events of 1558-1603. Queen Elizabeth and her counsellors, as well as the Scots government, treated Border affairs as matters of great importance." Tough's carefully researched and thorough work shows a wealth of material that was long overlooked in detailing the history of the Borders during this important period. He paints a vivid and impressive picture of the Borders and includes chapters on geography, social and economic conditions, religion, the Wardens, Border warfare, international Border law, both English and Scottish domestic Border law, as well as a chronological history of the Borders during the last years before the Union of the Crowns in 1603.
