 Offa of Mercia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The 20th century historian Frank Stenton, in his authoritative history, Anglo-Saxon England, noted that the evidence of charters from the period suggests that Kent first fell under Offa's influence.
This, according to Stenton, indicates the possibility that the Mercians were in fact defeated at Otford, but in any case Offa was certainly exercising authority over Kent by 785, and Mercian control lasted until 796, the year of Offa's death, when a rebellion under Eadbert Praen was temporarily successful in regaining Kentish independence.
In Anglo-Saxon England, Stenton argued that Offa was perhaps the greatest king of the Anglo-Saxon kingdoms, but that the proof of his abilities was obscured by the lack of a historian (such as Bede a half-century earlier, or Asser a century later) to describe his achievements.

Professor Stenton examines the development of English society, describes the chief phases in the history of the Anglo-Saxon Church, and studies the unification of Britain begun by the kings of Mercia, and completed by the kings of Wessex.
Stenton is a milestone in the writing of history of the period, a work which still has to be consulted, a work which still confers benefits, but a work, nevertheless, of a bygone era.
Stenton's bibliography pays tribute to HODGKIN -"History of the Anglo-Saxons", which, though dated is fun to read, composed in a more popular style and is a wonderful introduction to the early AS period for the general reader.

At this point, however, Caedwalla abdicated, being succeeded by Ine, and went on a pilgrimage to Rome, possibly because he was dying of the wounds he had suffered while fighting on the Isle of Wight.
Although Caedwalla was, according to the 20th century historian Frank Stenton, "an associate and patron of churchmen", he had never been baptized, and Bede states that he wished to "obtain the peculiar honor of being baptized in the church of the blessed apostles".
In Rome, he was indeed baptized by Pope Sergius I on the Saturday before Easter (according to Bede), took the name Peter, and died not long afterwards, "still in his white garments".

Northumbria was greatly weakened as a consequence of the battle; the kingdom became fractured to some degree between Deira in its southern part and Bernicia in the north, with the Deirans acquiring a king of their own, Oswine, while in Bernicia, Oswald was succeeded by his brother, Oswiu.
Stenton, for example, considered it likely that Merewalh was a representative of a local dynasty that continued to rule under Mercian domination.

By Stenton's own estimate for the time it took news of William's landing to travel north to York, Stenton, Anglo-Saxon England, 592., news of the landing at Riccall would not have reached London until Sept 19 or 20.
While that would allow time for a march to Tadcaster, it would require that the army be ready to march immediately and would not allow time to gather forces on the way.

It quotes both the Anglo Saxon Chronicals and the Cambrian annals as evidence that the battle occurred in 945 and that Cumberland and Strathclyde, with respect to the lands of Dunmail, were one and the same place.
Although it seems to be widely accepted that Dunmails two sons were blinded after the battle, Stenton suggests that Dunmail was not killed at the battle.
