Deborah Richmond Foulkes FsA scot, is a recognized historical researcher and author of several Douglas family books. As a Douglas descendant,  Dr. Foulkes is proud to share these exciting stories of her medieval ancestors as they fought for freedom during the Scottish Wars for National independence.

Her books are available at mytruthliesintheruins.com, Amazon.com and from AuthorHouse.com in hard cover, soft cover, as well as E-book format,

Her contributions to the Douglas Archives include:
•  13th century Douglas manors in England.  A number of stories regarding the medieval Douglases in Scotland included references to lands held by Lord Douglas in at least six counties in Scotland. Few historians mentioned the additional manors held by William le Hardi, Lord Douglas in England. The original source of the Douglas wealth with respect to these other English manors was either ignored or perhaps unknown to many except to the readers of 'The Douglas Trilogy', specifically the first book in that series, My Truth Lies ln The Ruins.
•  Douglas castles in England.  This article complements the above.
•  William Douglas, Abbott of Melrose Her article on William Douglas and Melrose Abbey in the 10th century is based on information researched from this book, "The Monastic Annals of Teviotdale" by the Rev. James Morton, B.D. 1832. He said "that if Dempster is to be believed," citing information taken from a fragment of a catalogue of the abbots of the monastery that Dempster saw with his own eyes...then William Douglas was abbot of Melrose in the beginning of the 11th century.
•  Footprints of the Douglas Scotti: A Scottish Warrior Journeys to Piacenza in Northern Italy in 794 [pdf]
