This first edition of the Anglo-Saxon archive of the Benedictine monastery at Peterborough includes royal diplomas, an Old English will and a series of spectacular post-Conquest forgeries. The earlier documents overturn our understanding of an earlier house known as Medeshamstede, and shed light on the fate of the East Midlands under Danish rule.
