After all, a classic two-volume Inventory of the ancient monuments of Peeblesshire was published in 1967 by the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Scotland (hereafter RCAHMS).
However, no such account can ever be wholly definitive, for it is a truism that areas of landscape almost invariably repay re-investigation when viewed with fresh eyes and in the light of changing approaches to archaeological field survey.
After setting the scene with a brief description of the landscape, the writers unfold the story of its past inhabitants, from the traces left by early prehistoric hunters as they camped by the Tweed to the ruinous towers of its 16th century lairds.
