Hunting and Hunting Reserves in Medieval Scotland by John M. Gilbert
Book DescriptionThis comprehensive and scholarly study of hunting and hunting reserves in medieval Scotland examines these and other questions. The author traces the spread of forests from their origins in seventh-century Europe to their arrival in Scotland. He describes how in the reserves the king or his barons controlled not only hunting but also grazing, woodcutting and building. The continuities from pre- to post-Norman Scotland are revealed in the methods of hunting, and in the hunting rights of the common people and those barons who did not possess reserves. Forests were often the locus of social and political conflict. They restricted land use and often had to be preserved from encroachment and poaching by commoners and the poor. This book contains extensive documentation in the form of legal and estate records; a plate section which illustrates many aspects of medieval hunting; and a full critical edition of the Forest Law both in Latin and in translation. It will be of interest both to scholars and to anyone with an interest in medieval history.
