Border, the,

region surrounding the boundary between England and Scotland. From the coast near Berwick along the Tweed River through the Cheviot Hills and on to Solway Firth, the narrow, rugged country is dotted with sites of battles between the Scots and the English. The wild country figures much in literature—in legend, in folklore, and particularly in the Border ballads.
