<<< 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  
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.

Thank you for this suggestion. Unfortunately, it looks a little bit  
late for my 1150s Anglo-Norman Yorkshire persona, but the your  
comments and the reviews make it sound like an interesting book.  
Perhaps I can project some of this backwards. Afterall, I always said  
it was the Scots stealing my sheep. Now I can know. :-)

It would be nice to find more about the daily life in 12th C York  
shire but for now I'll settle for what I can get.
