The striking of coins in Scotland was partly a result of the spread of Anglo-Norman influence. David I of Scotland ‘was half-English by birth, Anglo-Norman by education, earl of Huntingdon and claimant to Northumberland by marriage and during part of his reign master of Cumberland and Westmorland by conquest. His earliest coins, from the former English mint of Carlisle, were struck by the moneyer Erebald who had previously minted in the name of Henry I, and all his pennies were English in inspiration and sometimes in design.’ Grierson, p.91
