In the year 944, Edmund, the mighty king of the English, expelled two kings, namely, Anlaf, son of king Sithric, and Reginald, son of Guthferth, from Northumbria, and reduced it to subjection. In the year 945, Edmund, the mighty king of the Englisû, laid waste the lands of the Cumbrians, and granted them to Malcolm, king of the Scots, on condition that he should be faithful to him both by land and sea. In the year from the incarnation of our Lord 946, Edmund, the mighty king of the English on the day of the feast of Saint Augustine, the instructor of the English, while, at a town, which in English is called Pucklecirce,60 he was attempt-ing to rescue his sewer Leo51 from the hands of a most vile robber, for fear lest he should be killed, was slain by the same man, after having reigned five years and seven months, in the fourth year of the indiction, on the seventh day before the calends of June, being the third day of the week. Being taken to Glastonbury, he was there interred by Saint Dunstan, the abbat. His brother Edred succeeded him in the kingdom, and was consecrated king by Saint Odo, the archbishop, at Kingston. In the year 947, Wulstan, archbishop of York, and all the nobles of Northumbria, swore fidehty to Edred, the excel-lent king of the English, at a town which is caBed Tadenes-clif,62 but they did not long observe it ; for they elected a cer-tain man, named Eiric, a Dane by birth, to be king over them. In the year 948, in return for the unfaithfulness of the Northumbrians, Edred, the exceBent king of the English, laid waste the whole of Northumbria ; in which devastation the monastery at Rhipum,63 which was said to have been formerly built by Saint Wilfred, the bishop, was destroyed by fire. But, as the king was returning homewards, the army saflied forth from York, and made great slaughter of the rear of the king's 50 Pucklechurch, in Gloucestershire. Matthew of Westminster and Roger of Wendover call the place Micklesbury. 61 It is more generally represented that the name of the robber was Leof j the name no doubt which is here given to the attendant. 52 Lambarde takes this place to be the same as Topcliff, in Yorkshire. 53 Ripon. 6G ANNALS OF EOGEB DE HOVEDEN.
