Between the 13th and 17th century families across the Scottish border were at war. They raped, pillaged and murdered for what the believed was rightfully theirs. The family ties were more significant than differences in nationality. Borderlands looks at the land they fought on and over. Creating trophies that symbolise the worth of the land and physically taking the land means not only a contribution to their war but comments on the acts of the border families. The land of the Borders are sites of devastation as well as sites of family identities.
