An independent territory between Scotland and England, the Debatable Land was the oldest detectable territorial division in Britain and, at the height of its notoriety, the bloodiest region in the country. Fought over by Henry VIII, Elizabeth I and James V, it eventually came under the control of the state after the Union of the Crowns and its history has largely been forgotten. Graham Robb uncovers lost towns and roads, sheds new light on the Dark Age and makes more than one discovery of major historical significance in this fascinating uncovering of a once maligned land.
