This tangental to the main question but if you want to get an idea of the
late period political/social/economic interplay between Scotland and England
along their common border take a look at George McDonald Frasier's book
"Steel Bonnets". Wild west with claymores... lots of cattle, horse and
sheep thieving plus burglary, arson, kidnapping, extortion and murder.
Favorite form of murder was to drown the victim as as it was considered
polite to leave a tidy, i.e. unmarked, corpus. Got to be some food
references in the primary sources as there was quite a bit of "social"
interplay on trucial days.
