    The Harrying of The North.....

    .....By Wilyum the Conkerer. What a mean barstard he woz. I never heard of this before now

    One for Dave Burgess here.....

    "Independent archaeological evidence supports the massive destruction and displacement of people. The archaeologist Richard Ernest Muir wrote that there was evidence for the "violent disruption [that] took place in Yorkshire in 1069–71, in the form of hoards of coins which were buried by the inhabitants."[26] B.K. Roberts in his book The Making of the English Village, suggests the reason that large numbers of villages have been laid out in regular pattern in Durham and Yorkshire, was through a restructuring at a single point in time, as opposed to natural settlement growth.

    So study the Harrying and get hurdy gurdying mate ...I bet there are tons of coin hoards out there. That got buried and then the owners got put to the sword.
