Date from Source <822>: after the passage of a year following the deposition of Ceolwulf 5 from the kingdom [of the Mercians], at the time of a synod at Clofesho


@Campbell 1962, p. 28 translates 'ibidem' as 'at the same time' [sc. as the Synod of Clofeshoh] but he provides an alternative in n. 1: 'Or, giving ibidem its usual sense, "in that place", which would mean that Ęthelweard inferred that B. and M. were killed at the synod.'
