Synopsis: 

Bloody Berwick, a well written account of the history of Berwick, commences in medieval times with the death of Alexander III of Scotland in 1286 and ends in 1624, following the union of the crowns of England and Scotland, with the completion of a stone bridge (known now as the ‘Old Bridge’) over the Tweed. It is a history of the town regularly changing hands between the two kingdoms, told principally by reference to the leading characters, still well known today, including, on the English side, Edwards I to IV and Richard III, and, on the Scottish side, William Wallace and Robert the Bruce. Interspersed throughout are the author’s contemporary musical and sporting loves which are sure to give this book great appeal to a wide audience.
