    Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Anglo-Saxon Chronicle - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    ''The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is a generic term for the disparate collection of annals that record the centuries-long history of the Anglo-Saxons, extending in some cases even beyond the Norman Conquest of 1066. The Chronicle seems to have originated from a body of historical writings now known as the "common stock." Even the common stock is relatively late, however, and certainly does not extend back to the arrival of the Anglo-Saxon peoples to England; this material dates back only to the late ninth century, and was perhaps written at the request of King Alfred the Great (r. 871-99). The authors of the common stock retroactively devised entries for the dates before their own time; for these entries, the authors mined existing sources like Bede's Ecclesiastical History of the English People and various local annals. The common stock spread quickly throughout England, and Chronicles in different places took on a more local color. Michael Swanton aptly summarizes: "[The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle] does not consist of one uniform text, but a number of individual texts which have a similar core, but considerable local variations; each has its own intricate textual history."
    The two Chronicle entries included on this website deal with the Adventus Saxorum, the traditional account of the coming to Britain of the Germanic tribes. This account indicated that the Germanic peoples came to Britain in a sweeping invasion that defeated and displaced the Romano-Celtic Britons; the British cleric Gildas, writing in the sixth century, popularized this tale in his treatise On the Ruin of Britain.Two centuries later, the Anglo-Saxon historian Bede borrowed Gildas' account when he added this episode to his Ecclesiastical History. The compilers of the common stock of the Chronicle borrowed their text from Bede. Thus the Chronicle reiterates the Adventus Saxorum tradition, but the truth is that the Germanic settlement of Britain was less a full-scale invasion and more a gradual migration over the course of the fifth century.''

    Vortigern in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle: Text & Translation

    Likely,we would have GILDAS to thank for this 'loose' re-interpretation of British history.
    According to his perceptions,just about everyone from the Romans on DESERVED to invade,conquer and suppress the ancient yet degenerate British culture.

    Vaticanization of history,no?

    So hard to even get to the truth about current events, let alone histories where motivations exist for manipulation.

    I seem to recall a comment from Sacred Prize about going to original texts, at least as far as the puzzle is concerned.
