Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Jedburgh
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Jedburgh, Scottish Borders, Scotland. Jedburgh is a town and former royal burgh in the Scottish Borders and former county town of Roxburghshire. The town is located on the Jed Water, a tributary of the River Teviot. It is 10 miles from the border with England, and is dominated by the substantial ruins of Jedburgh Abbey. Other notable buildings in the town include Mary, Queen of Scots' House, Jedburgh Castle Jail, now a museum, and the Carnegie library. The deeply religious Scottish king Malcolm IV died at Jedburgh in 1165, aged 24. His death is thought to have been caused by excessive fasting. The expression Jeddart justice or Jethart Justice, in which a man was hanged first, and tried afterwards, seems to have arisen from one case of summary execution of a gang of villains. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
