In Pictures: English-Scottish border Add to ...

An event to commemorate the 500th anniversary of the Battle of Flodden, a bloody defeat of the Scottish by the English that took place in 1513, claiming thousands of lives. Signs of ancient conflict - from centuries-old fortifications to historic battlefields - score the landscape around the English-Scottish border. But many living in the region lead lives straddling both sides, and express practical concerns about the possibility of a more formal split between the two nations in the event of a yes vote in next year's referendum on Scottish independence, which will be held on September 18, 2014.
