A beautiful poster-print map telling the story of the Border Reivers of the Anglo-Scottish Border. They were often “cruel, coarse savages” who lived through necessity by stealing livestock from one another, often engaging in violent feuds. Yet many reivers were also gifted balladeers and passionate footballers too. Descendants of Border Reivers can be found throughout the world and are still especially prominent in the North of England and southern Scotland. If you’re an Armstrong, Robson, Charlton, Milburn or Elliot there’s a good chance you’re descended from the Border Reivers. Other surnames featured on the map include Bell, Carlisle, Collingwood, Fenwick, Forster, Graham, Gray, Hall, Hedley, Heron, Hetherington, Hume, Johnstone, Kerr, Lowther, Maxwell, Moffat, Potts, Ridley, Riddel, Routledge, Rowell, Salkeld, Stokoe, Scott, Storey, Trotter, Turnbull, Tweedie, Young and many others. Printed on luxury 250gsm silk paper and available as an A3 or A2 poster-print.
