Adventures in Old Galloway

Wednesday, 15 November, 2017 @ 12:00 PM - 01:30 PM | Cost:Free

On the west coast of Scotland, on her most southerly border, is the district of Dumfries and Galloway, once known as Old Galloway. Adjacent to that runs the border with England running from the Solway Firth, on the west coast, to Lamberton just north of Berwick on the east coast. As the crow flies it is a distance of about 75 miles. In medieval times, it was a thriving and bustling area for commerce, architecture, education and for religious & social change. But, Old Galloway and the border lands also became notorious for the lawlessness that pervaded the area due to raiding bandits and warring armies crisscrossing the border, and for religious intolerance that sparked the demise of many border icons and peoples. This presentation tells the story of a once flourishing and dynamic area of southern Scotland and the forces that came to cause its collapse.
