I'm in bed with Alice Perrers and very worried that all her wheeling and dealing is going to bring her down.

Souvent entre piez de chevals
Kar ja li coard n’I chasront

Are always to be found between the hooves of horses
For never will cowards fall down there.'

At Norham Castle , where discussions are taking place between Edward I of England and the magnates of Scotland over the kingship of Scotland.

Norham Castle , as painted by William Turner.


"The River Tweed carved a broad course through meadows and crop fields. The southern banks marked the end of the kingdom of England while across the wind-uffled water, on the northern bank, the kingdom of Scotland began.

At a large, lazy loop in the river on the English side was the small settlement of Norham. The town, slumbering in the treacle-thick heat.of a midsummer afternoon, was dominated by a stone castle, one of the chief strongholds of Anthony Bek, the Bishop of Durham. The sheer whitewashed walls, reflected in the river’s glassy surface, were gashed with arrow slits, all facing the the reed-fringed northern bank. Hanging from the tallest turret was a scarlet banner, adorned with three golden lions."
