Primary Source Info


*Anonymi 2423 are referred to as 'sua [sc. Ceolwulf 2's] propria gente'. ASC 597 A here refers to 'the English' ['Angelcyn']. Ęthelweard 23 is thus using 'gens' to refer to the English people as a whole rather than to the tribal grouping of the West Angles [= West Saxons], whom he has just mentioned.
