Early Norman Castles of the British Isles – DATA CD – $29.50
The successful invasion of England in 1066 by Duke William of Normandy brought the full force of continental feudalism to England and firmly established the Norman castle and its architecture as the premier pattern for design for the island. It was a new way of building and of governing, using a fortified castle of massive proportions as a base for a limited number of highly skilled knights on horseback. This history begins with a survey of English Norman castles, described and identified by the name of the builder or the family associated with it. Then follow chapters on Welsh and then on Scottish Norman castles. This last section primarily deals with King David and his successors, and with the introduction of a fully developed feudalism into Scotland. Finally, there is a section on the introduction of the Norman castle into Ireland.

 

Scotland

The Haigs of Bemersyde: A Family History – DATA CD – $29.50

Through the centuries, this family often was at the center of national life, and shared the fate of the causes they espoused. This history is a comprehensive one, tracing the fate of this primary line over the course of many centuries. Included are genealogies of the Haigs of Bemersyde, Clackmannanshire, and Yorkshire. There is as well an extensive chapter on Border life and customs.

This is a revised second edition of a history of the reformed or fundamental religious movement drawn from Presbyterianism and flourishing particularly in the most isolated regions of Scotland.

This study is limited to Moray and Ross, and from around 1638 through 1688.
