CM 787

Here Beorhtric took as his wife King Offa�s daughter Eadburh; and in his days there for the first time 3 ships of Northmen from Hordaland; these were first ships of the Danish men which sought out the land of the English race.

PM 787

Here Beorthtric [king of Wessex] took King Offa�s daughter Eadburh. And in his days [Beorthtric] came first 3 ships of the Northmen from Hordaland: and then the reeve rode there and wanted to compel them to go the king�s town because he did not know what they were; and they killed him. There were the first ships of the Danish men which sought out the land of the English race.

Note: An anonymous seventh-century author from Ravenna tells us that the land of the Northmen was called Dania since old times. Hordaland is the district around Hardanger Fjord in West Norway. It is almost certain this is not the first instance of a Viking raid on the British mainland. It has been suggested by Angelo Forte, Richard Oram and Frederik Pedersen in Viking Empires, this account should be treated with caution, as the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is a highly propagandistic work and there may be a element of spin. In other words, it may have been inserted in that place to emphasise the idea that Wessex kingdom was, and always had been, both first victim and principal defender of the Anglo-Saxons against the heathen onslaught.

CM 793

Here terrible portents came about in the land of Northumbria, and miserably afflicted the people: these were immense flashes of lighting, and fiery dragons were seen flying in the air, and there immediately followed a great famine, and after that in the same year the raiding of the heathen miserably devasted God�s church in Lindisfarne island by looting and slaughter.

PM 793

Here terrible portents came about in the land of Northumbria, and miserably frightened the people: these were immense flashes of lighting, and fiery dragons were seen flying in the air. A great famine immediately followed these signs, and a little after that in the same year the raiding of the heathen men miserably devasted God�s church in Lindisfarne island by looting and slaughter. And Sicga passed away on 22 February.

Note: The monastery of Lindisfarne was founded by St. Aed�n (d. 651) in 634. He was possibly born in Connacht and was originally a monk at the monastery of Iona in the west of Scotland. At the request of King Oswald of Northumbria, Aed�n was sent by the abbot of Ions as missionary to Northumbria.

A slaughter of the heathens by the Ulaid.


Donnchadh � Corr�in has argued that a substantial part of Scotland�the Northern and Western Isles and large areas of the coastal mainland from Caithness and Sutherland to Argyle�was conquered by the Vikings in the first quarter of the ninth century and a Viking kingdom was set up there earlier than the middle of the century. The occupation of this part of Scotland corresponds chronologically to what he called the prelude to the Viking wars in Ireland (from c.795 to c.825). The main thrust of the ninth century Viking attack on Ireland (c.825 to c.850) was mounted from Scotland; Laithlinn was the name of Viking Scotland; and the dynasty that imposed itself on Dublin. From 827 onwards, the Irish annals introduce new designation to describe the Vikings, namely, Foreigners, Norsemen and Lochainn. Until then, they were mainly known as heathens or pagans.

AU 827.3 - Foreigners

Note: Lusca is Lusk, a small town in Fingal north of Dublin. This entry contains the first reference to a new designation for the Norsemen called 'foreigners'. Here in 827, the foreign Vikings were victims of a raid, not the predators. Airther �the east� appears to refer to the Vikings oconaibh insibh airthir Breg, that is, at the islands of eastern Brega, mentioned in 852. This territory probably refers to the islands of the coastline north of Dublin, extending from Lambay Island to St. Patrick�s Island, off Skerries, where the Vikings had burned St. Patrick�s and took cattle-tribute of the territories in 798.

FA 858 - Gall-Ghoidhelaib

In this year, the twelfth year of M�el Sechlainn's reign, M�el Sechlainn made a large hosting into Osraige and Munster, because the men of Munster had said that they would not give hostages to him; and that was why M�el Sechlainn declared war on them. And M�el Sechlainn had another important reason: Cerball son of D�nlang, king of Osraige, that man who was worthy to possess all Ireland because of the excellence of his form and his countenance and his dexterity, took great annual tributes from the Laigin territories that he possessed. However, the people who went to collect that tribute, i.e. the stewards of Cerball son of D�nlang, created great strife in collecting the tribute, and gave great insult to the Laigin. Therefore, the Laigin went complaining to M�el Sechlainn, and told this to him. M�el Sechlainn was seized by rage, and be brought a large muster against Cerball and the Munster men who were assisting Cerball.

M�el Sechlainn and his army then came to Gabr�n, and it was at the edge of Gabr�n that the other troops were. Although M�el Sechlainn's forces were more numerous, he did not attack them; instead they took a route other than that which was expected, till they reached Carn Lugdach, and there M�el Sechlainn was armed and equipped against all. When the men of Munster saw that, they left their camp and divided their army in two, and the king of Munster, M�el Guala, came against M�el Sechlainn with many horsemen. Cerball and his Danes�those left of Horm's followers who remained with Cerball�had their encampment in a brambly, dense, entangled wood, and Cerball had a great muster there about him. The learned related that Cerball had great difficulty there because Tairceltach mac na Certa practised magic upon him, so that it might be less likely that he should go to the battle; so Cerball said that he would go to sleep then, and would not go to the battle.

The troop which included the king of Munster overcame M�el Sechlainn's men at first. Then his foot-soldiers came up to relieve him (i.e. to relieve M�el Sechlainn and his followers), and they routed the men of Munster and massacred them. Many of their freemen were slain there. The learned relate that the number of the defeated army was twenty thousand.

When Cerball heard of that, he decided that hostages should be given to M�el Sechlainn so that his territory would not be devastated; and M�el Sechlainn accepted hostages from him. For Land, daughter of D�nlang, sister of Cerball, was the wife of M�el Sechlainn.

M�el Sechlainn went to Munster, and he was at Imlech for a month, raiding Munster, so that he took the hostages of Munster from Comar Tr� n-Uisce to Inis Tarbna in the west of Ireland. That was the battle of Carn Lugdach. In that battle M�el Cr�in son of Muiredach, one of the two kings of the D�issi, was killed. Although M�el Sechlainn did not make this expedition to take the kingship of Munster for himself, it was worth coming in order to kill those Gall-Gaedelaibh who were slain there, for they were men who had forsaken their baptism, and they used to be called Normannaigh, for they had the customs of the Normannach, and had been fostered by them, and though the original Normannaigh were evil to the churches, these were much worse, these people, wherever in Ireland they were.
