Scarborough town was founded around 966AD as Skardaborg, by Thorgils Skarthi, a Viking raider.
In the Middle Ages, Scarborough Fair was permitted in a royal charter as a six week trading festival which ran from August 15th until 29th September. The fair continued to be held for 500 years, into the 18th century and is commemorated in the song, Are you going to Scarborough Fair?

This is packaged in one of Gibson’s newer eco friendly boxes which is smaller than the traditional size and no longer has the cellophane. The 1000 pieces inside remain the same size and quality though on the sturdy, recycled cardboard.
