Alistair Moffat - Between Britain: Walking the History of England and Scotland. An Illustrated Talk

Moffat+Alistair

Alistair Moffat takes us on a journey along the border between Scotland and England, travelling westward from Berwick-upon-Tweed to the mouth of the River Sark.

Rich in history, the Border has been the site of battles, treaties, castles and crossroads. It is also a place where both countries display their nationalism: Saltires flying in the north, the Cross of St George to the south. It is a lens through which to look at the changing identities of these two countries. At once a personal reminiscence and an examination of national identity, Between Britain is also a warm celebration of a place and the people who live there.
