About the Border Reivers
For 300 years the people of the Anglo-Scottish border lived in a war zone. Invading armies caused terror, destruction and death. From this conflict emerged ruthless men who were expert raiders, horsemen and cattle thieves. History knows them as the Border Reivers and their surnames survive to this day… is your name among them?
