Book recommendations for trip to England and Scotland

Jump to last reply

I'm looking for recommendations for books to read prior to an upcoming trip to England and Scotland. I'd appreciate any recs on the following:

1. history of York (either focusing on the medieval period or a comprehensive history).
2. anything about St. Bede or St. Cuthbert (visiting Durham Cathedral)
3. Hadrian's Wall
4. Border Wars
5. Dissolution of the monasteries (will be seeing a lot of ruined abbeys!)

I'd prefer non-fiction, and don't mind primary or older sources (if for example the best thing you've read about St. Bede was by one of his contemporaries, that's cool.) I would also read historical fiction, although it's not my favorite. Thanks everyone!
