For this reason the composition of the chronicle is generally dated to the reign of King Alfred. /wiki/Anglo-Saxon_Chronicle

 Anglo-Saxons - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is a collection of important early English history.
Anglo-Saxon literature (or Old English literature) encompasses literature written in Old English during the 600-year Anglo-Saxon period of Britain, from the mid-5th century to the Norman Conquest of 1066.
Still more curious is the fact that West Saxon writers regularly speak of their own nation as a part of the Angelcyn and of their language as Englisc, while the West Saxon royal family claimed to be of the same stock as that of Bernicia in the north. /wiki/Anglo-Saxon

 Anglo-Saxon Chronicle 3: MS A, 0859911039, £45.00/$90.00, 304pp, 1986
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is the backbone of Anglo-Saxon history, an almost contemporary record of events for about five hundred years, and a vital resource for Anglo-Saxon historians.
MS A (CCCC MS 173) is the oldest of the surviving copies of the Chronicle and physically the most complex; it took shape initially during the tenth century and is generally endowed with considerable authority because of its age.
The nature of the Chronicle, its relation to official historiography, and its historical place, have long been debated: thisproject will provide a uniform edition from which further research can proceed. /59911039.HTM

Alfred was patron of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle (which was copied and supplemented up to 1154), a patriotic history of the English from the Wessex viewpoint designed to inspire its readers and celebrate Alfred and his monarchy.
Born at Wantage, Berkshire, in 849, Alfred was the fifth son of Aethelwulf, king of the West Saxons.
Local people either surrendered or escaped (Hampshire people fled to the Isle of Wight), and the West Saxons were reduced to hit and run attacks seizing provisions when they could. /output/Page25.asp

 The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle - an Introduction
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle is a complex set of interrelated manuscripts, of which the earliest is known as the Parker Chronicle.

 Literary Encyclopedia: The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
That the ASC was extremely significant as a record of Anglo-Saxon England both during the Anglo-Saxon period and thereafter, is seen by the many texts that have been influenced directly or indirectly.
For a long time, the ASC was predominantly cited as the prime witness of Anglo-Saxon history.
Several scribes were responsible for writing and copying the Chronicle during the eleventh century, allowing for a contemporary comment in the mid-eleventh century entries. /php/sworks.php?rec=true&UID=10516

 Regia Anglorum - Saxon Military Organisation
Tostig's English and Danish retainers are referred to as huscarls by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, but the word may have become a general term describing all landless soldiers as opposed to ├░egns who were warriors and land owners under the king.
At Hastings the Saxon army, with its elite force weakened through achieving victory at Stamford Bridge, and short of the quota of men from the fyrd, successfully withstood the Norman army in a battle which lasted considerably longer than was normal for the period from dawn until dusk.
Often the Bayeux Tapestry is quoted as a source for 'peasant levies' using the group of unarmoured men on the hill, or the fleeing Saxons at the end of the battle to support the theory. /saxons2.htm

Alongside the year 777 (actually 779), the 'Anglo-Saxon Chronicle' reports that: "This year Cynewulf (of Wessex) and Offa fought near Bensington (Benson, Oxfordshire), and Offa took possession of the town." In 789, Offa's daughter, Eadburh, was married to Cynewulf's successor, Beorhtric.
Against the year 715, the 'Anglo-Saxon Chronicle', with no further detail, simply announces that Ceolred and Ine of Wessex "fought" at a site called 'Woddes beorge' (Woden's Barrow), which is identified with a tumulus now known as 'Adam's Grave', Wiltshire.
The 'Chronicle' disparagingly describes Ceolwulf II as "an unwise king's thegn", however, he might possibly have been from the same branch of the Mercian nobility as Cenwulf (796-821) and his brother Ceolwulf I (821-823). /mercia.htm

They probably thought of themselves as separate peoples, but they shared a common language and similar customs. /History/Anglo-Saxon_Britain.htm Books: The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
The first continuous national history of any western people in their own language, The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle traces the history of early England from the migration of the Saxon war-lords, through Roman Britain, the onslaught of the Vikings, the Norman Conquest and on through the reign of Stephen.
This translation was originally published by J.M. Dent in 1996, and intended as a replacement for that publisher's Everyman's Library "Anglo-Saxon Chronicle" translation of 1953, the highly-regarded, and often disliked, work of Norman Garmonsway.
Following the story of the Anglo-Saxons from their rather shadowy beginnings (the early parts of the book aren't precisely historical, as is explained in the introduction) through their battles with the Vikings and their conquest by the Normans, as told in their own words, one also gets to see the chronicle's authors grow in sophistication. /exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/0415921295?v=glance
