Planets Visible in the Night Sky in Murcia, Spain
Wessex , one of the kingdoms of Anglo-Saxon England , whose ruling dynasty eventually became kings of the whole country. In its permanent nucleus, its land approximated that of the modern counties of Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire, and Somerset. At times its land extended north of the River Thames , and it eventually expanded westward to cover Devon and Cornwall.
Wessex grew from two settlements: one was founded, according to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle , by Cerdic and his son or grandson Cynric , who landed in Hampshire in or and became kings in or ; the other, known only from archaeological evidence, was situated on the upper Thames and was probably settled from the northeast. Though the Chronicle implies that this area was in British hands in , when Cuthwulf perhaps a member of the West Saxon royal house captured Luton, Aylesbury, Bensington now Benson, in Oxfordshire , and Eynsham, archaeological evidence proves earlier settlement.
Only a few incidents of the early expansion are recorded.

This chapter is offered as a small token of immense gratitude to the honorand of this volume. Her ability to throw new light on well-trodden material is widely acknowledged and is in many ways a function of her belief in, and lifelong engagement with, interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the early Middle Ages and the rich fruits that forays into the past of that nature can bear.
Barbara has offered sage advice over the last ten years or so in a series of research collaborations at the Institute of Archaeology, ucl , both guiding and informing the Leverhulme Trust funded projects Beyond the Burghal Hidage , Landscapes of Governance and, most recently, Travel and Communication in Anglo-Saxon England. This piece therefore attempts to encapsulate the spirit of interdisciplinary enquiry by bringing together materials drawn from archaeology, written sources and place-names to reveal elements of the early medieval landscape history of a corner of north-eastern Wessex Fig.
The discussion begins by focussing on a brief report of human burials discovered at Mildenhall, Wiltshire in the s, with more recent related discoveries, but whose possible significance, it can be suggested, has lain unrecognised until now and whose non-normative character, topographical and geographical setting prompt a wider enquiry. On the basis of written sources relating to the tenurial history of the area in which the burials were found, a case is then made for reconsidering the significance and role of the locale in the later 8th century during a period of competing claims to territory between the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex.
Overall, the paper attempts to draw a thread between a place, a region and a broader historical context, although each of these scaled discussions is arguably self-sustainable. On the way it makes suggestions about the historical and geographical context of a few problematic documents and some much debated toponyms to bring attention to a successful Wessex ruler, King Cynewulf, whose career is much neglected in the face of his contemporary, King Offa of Mercia.
The initial inspiration for this paper is a report of barely a page-and-a-half published in the relatively obscure Report of the Marlborough College Natural History Society in The note in question, authored by that most active reporter of local archaeological discoveries in Wiltshire, Owen Meyrick, encapsulates in crisp prose many of the key aspects of the findings and the following summary draws solely upon that note as the only account of the discovery.
While the exact position of the burials excavated in was not recorded, excavations and a watching brief undertaken by Wessex Archaeology in led to the recovery of a further two graves and other disarticulated human remains re-deposited in the fills of other archaeological features O. SU The graves lay alongside the south bank of the River Kennet as it flows eastwards on a meandering course to the north of Cvnetio Fig.

Lease liabilities continuedThe following table shows the operating lease commitments disclosed when IAS 17 was applied at 31 March , discounted using the borrowing rate at the date of initial application and the lease liabilities recognised in the Groups consolidated balance sheet at the date of initial application. As at 31 March , the Group had no lease liabilities in respect of leases committed to but not yet commenced.
The table below summarises the lease costs for the financial year ended 31 March The initial consideration was 16,,, with deferred consideration of up to 8,, also being payable, contingent upon certain conditions being met. The deferred consideration comprises6,,in cash, payable in three equal instalments on the first, second and third anniversaries of completion, provided that no termination notice has been served by any of the Northern VCTs before each respective anniversary payment date, and 2,,payable in new Ordinary Mercia shares.
If either or both of these conditions are met the number of new Ordinary shares to be issued to satisfy the deferred share consideration will be calculated based on the average of the daily closing mid-market price for an Ordinary Mercia share, for each of the five days immediately preceding the date of issue.

Vince Conway of Fish Hoek had to wait from May to March for a refund of R1 on a parcel he sent to America, which reached its destination 33 days after the promised four to five days. And Ms Tshatsinde ignored my many emails for progress reports. I paid R3 so it could be sent by airmail which would then take two to four weeks to reach its destination. But it only arrived three months later, on July 25 with a few hiccups along the way.

At their father’s behest and by mutual agreement, Alfred’s elder brothers succeeded to the kingship in turn, rather than endanger the kingdom by passing it to under-age children at a time when the country was threatened by worsening Viking raids from Denmark. Since the s, the Vikings had been using fast mobile armies, numbering thousands of men embarked in shallow-draught longships, to raid the coasts and inland waters of England for plunder.
Such raids were evolving into permanent Danish settlements; in , the Vikings seized York and established their own kingdom in the southern part of Northumbria. The Vikings overcame two other major Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, East Anglia and Mercia, and their kings were either tortured to death or fled. Finally, in the Danes attacked the only remaining independent Anglo-Saxon kingdom, Wessex, whose forces were commanded by King Aethelred and his younger brother Alfred.
At the battle of Ashdown in , Alfred routed the Viking army in a fiercely fought uphill assault. However, further defeats followed for Wessex and Alfred’s brother died. As King of Wessex at the age of 21, Alfred reigned was a strongminded but highly strung battle veteran at the head of remaining resistance to the Vikings in southern England.
In early , the Danes led by King Guthrum seized Chippenham in Wiltshire in a lightning strike and used it as a secure base from which to devastate Wessex. Local people either surrendered or escaped Hampshire people fled to the Isle of Wight , and the West Saxons were reduced to hit and run attacks seizing provisions when they could. With only his royal bodyguard, a small army of thegns the king’s followers and Aethelnoth earldorman of Somerset as his ally, Alfred withdrew to the Somerset tidal marshes in which he had probably hunted as a youth.
It was during this time that Alfred, in his preoccupation with the defence of his kingdom, allegedly burned some cakes which he had been asked to look after; the incident was a legend dating from early twelfth century chroniclers.
