Scholarly Info
Description When Earl Tosti 2 riled the earldom, the Scots, since they had not yet tested him and consequently held him more cheaply, harassed his often with raids rather than war. But this irresolute and fickle race of men, Tosti 2, sparing his own men, wore down as much by cunning schemes as by martial courage and military campaigns. And as a result they and their king [Malcolm 5] preferred to serve him and King Edward 15 than to continue fighting, and, moreover, to confirm the peace by giving hostages.
