Talk Postponed  (was 21st April 2020):  Cross Border Crime

In the light of the Covid-19 virus problems, this talk is postponed.



Margaret Fox will present a talk, "Cross Border Crime (Scotland’s Law Lords v Northumbrians Behaving Badly)".

After researching home-grown criminals brought to trial in the Scottish High Courts, Margaret turned her attention to those wicked Northumbrians who dared to cross the border to commit their crimes.

Margaret’s talk will reveal some fascinating stories which have up until now, been hidden away in the archives.
