Geography: Scarborough

Key points of interest in Scarborough, North Yorkshire, England. The name Scarborough dates back as far as the time of the Viking invasion of this part of England, with 'borough' deriving from the Viking word 'Borg' meaning 'stronghold', and ‘Scarborough’ meaning ‘Skarthi's stronghold’. According to the 'Kormaksaga', two Viking brothers called Thorgils and Kormak launched marauding parties into the rest of England, as well as into Wales and Ireland from the stronghold that they called Scarborough. Kormak is known to have called his brother 'Skarthi' (meaning 'Hare Lip' in Viking parlance) (Simpson, 2009). QUOTATION Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel’s song Scarborough Fair, which opens with the lyrics “Are you goin' to Scarborough Fair? Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme”, is based on a traditional ballad dating back to the late Middle Ages. The references to the traditional English fair and the one-line herbal refrain date back only to the 19th century, however. The fair came about as a huge 45-day trading event that brought tradespeople from near and far (including from other European states, and even from the Byzantine Empire) to show off their wares.
