 David I - Migrating from the south
intro and mission

You introduce a new system of landholding called āfeudalismÁ to Scotland. Land is divided up amongst nobles and tenants in exchange for money and service. Farmers work the land, tradesmen learn new skills and towns begin to grow.

Religious houses become wealthy land-holders, exporting local commodities like wool to European ports such as Bruges. Society is becoming more ordered.
