Ælfwald I buried at Hexham

The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
Project Gutenburg




A.D. 789. This year Elwald (Ælfwald I), king of the Northumbrians, was slain by Siga, on the eleventh day before the calends of October; and a heavenly light was often seen on the spot where he was slain. He was buried in the church of Hexham; and Osred, the son of Alred, who was his nephew, succeeded him in the government. This year there was a synod assembled at Acley.
