…but you can no longer claim to be the place named Hebbeshamm at which King Alfred convened an assembly of many of his leading men in 882, a meeting known solely from the passing reference made in a charter to its place of promulgation.

It’s led me to write in detail about somewhere other than Surrey for the first time in years, as well as considering the Vikings in much greater depth than I’ve ever done before. I’ve particularly enjoyed writing it and reading it back, and would like it to appear in print in the future, but where? Surrey, Essex – or at a national level?
