Reiver Tales at Amerdale Hall, Arncliffe
The Reivers: lawless families who terrorised the Anglo-Scottish border for 400 years from Newcastle to Edinburgh, Carlisle to Dumfries, until King James I broke their power. Living by blackmail, extortion, protection and theft, they grew to become some of the most powerful families of their time, with names we recognise today: the Nixons, the Armstrongs, the Charltons, the Dacres, the Maxwells and many more.
Northern writer Steve Byron weaves three tales of ordinary people caught up in the Reivers’ web: a farmer, a lawman and a young woman take a stand against their murderous ways. Will good triumph over evil, or will will evil win the day?
