Marches


Marches
Frontier territory, especially the Welsh Marches and the Scottish Marches. In medieval times they were subject to continual feuding.
The East, Middle, and West Marches on the Scottish border were the administrative districts on both the Scottish and English sides of the border. Each March had a Warden who was responsible for keeping the peace.
