  • Offa of Mercia The most successful King of Mercia was Offa was reigned from 756-96. Offa was a contemporary of Charlemagne and was able to mobilize his resources on scale unimaginable in Anglo-Saxon England. One of his most long lasting and visible accomplishments is Offa’s Dyke, a giant earthwork that serves as a barrier from his Kingdom and Celtic Wales. The purpose of this dike was to prevent Celtic war bands and raiding parties from easily traveling between regions and transporting goods. The size and scope of this structure was impressive then and it is still impressive. Offa was renowned during his lifetime and is one of the few Anglo-Saxon Kings known to communicate with his continental contemporaries. Offa and Charlemagne corresponded and Charlemagne referred to Offa has his “Dearest Brother” this was a diplomatic phrase used to denote equality between rulers. Charlemagne frequently used this term to refer to the Eastern Roman Emperors. The Eastern emperors would always reply to Charlemagne “My Dearest Son” which echoed their belief that Charlemagne was not their equal. Viking Attacks The Viking Attacks begun in the 780’s in the British Isles and came as quite a shock. The islands had not seen an invasion or foreign attacks since the Jutes and Saxon invasions of the 500’s. The Vikings were well known the Anglo-Saxons due to kinship ties and commercial activities in the North Sea. The Viking Attacks escalated quickly in Britain, the Monasteries at Lindisfarne 793, Gero 794 and Iona was attacked in 795. On the continent it took several years for the Vikings to be able to exploit the river systems of Western Europe which slowed down their attacks due to the geographic nature of the British Archipelago the every Anglo-Saxon and Celtic Kingdom was open to attack at any time. The coastline made for easy attacks. The South and East of Great Britain were the most vulnerable because they face Scandinavia directly. Though sailing around the North of Scotland and attacking the Western Great Britain and Ireland was an option as well, between 835-865 the Viking raids became an annual occurrence in the British Isles.

  • The Birth of England Introduction As the Carolingian Dynasty and Empire was collapsing on the continent and being replaced by The Capetian Dynasty in the Kingdom of France and the Ottonians in the Kingdom of Germany (Holy Roman Empire) the Germanic Kingdoms in Anglo-Saxon England  were transforming as well due to the Viking attacks. The Viking Attacks had a very different course and consequences in England than on the continent. Anglo-Saxon England was home to fluctuating kingdoms that differed in size and strength. The most important kingdoms were Kent, Wessex, Mercia, Sussex, Essex, East Anglia and Northumbria. Before the Viking Attacks there were a two prominent trends in Anglo-Saxon England one Political and the other Cultural. Cultural and Political Anglo-Saxon England Cultural was the rise of Northumbria to a position of dominance of in Anglo-Saxon England, Northumbria is located in the very North of England. Northumbria produced the two most influential intellectuals of the 7th and 8th centuries the Venerable Bede Abbot of Gero and Alcuin of York. Northumbria also produced some of the most recognized masterpieces of the Early Middle Ages, including the Lindisfarne Gospels written and illustrated in  698. Politically the Kingdom of Mercia ascends to a position of dominance over the other Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms. Mercia was most successful in establishing itself over the kingdoms to its East and south. Mercian Domination took several forms from regular tribute payments from the other kings to military access through the other kingdoms. The other Kingdoms mostly submitted to Mercia though some like Northumbria resisted and maintained their independence. #historywithted #history #fastfact #worldhistory #youtuber #teacher #instapic #knowledge #historybuff #education #homeschool #publicschool #nerd #geek #blogger #socialscience #socialchange #teachers  #teachersfollowteachers #eurasia #europe #culture #europeanhistory #britain #political #development #mercia #northumbria

  • • St Mary’s Church, Wirksworth • Unfortunately I arrived pretty late in the day and this wonderful medieval church was just locking up. However, I can’t wait to go back and go inside where there is (I’m informed) a Norman stone font, and various notable carvings and stone artifacts. One is of the ‘T’owd Man’, a carving of a man going to work in the lead mines. ⚒ This is the OLDEST representation of a miner anywhere in the world! 😱 I’ve attached a picture of a reconstruction of this carving that I took inside the Wirksworth Heritage Centre. I will go back and capture the real thing soon. 📸 Also within the church is an Anglo Saxon stone coffin lid which was found lying in the church yard in 1820. I’m not an architectural historian by any means, and my knowledge of church terminology is lacking, but most of this church dates from the 13th century. However, there has been a site of Christian worship established here since the 9th century, when the Kingdom of Mercia first converted to Christianity! Look at those catacombs on the outside of the wall.💀
