Body: 
In 793, terror descended on the coast of Northumbria as armed raiders attacked the defenceless monastery of St Cuthbert on Lindisfarne. The terrified monks watched helplessly as the invaders made off with a haul of treasure and a clutch of captives. It was the first recorded raid by the Vikings, seaborne pirates from Scandinavia who would prey on coastal communities in north-western Europe for more than two centuries and create for themselves a reputation as fierce and pitiless warriors. That image was magnified by those who wrote about the Viking attacks – in other words, their victims. The Anglo-Saxon cleric Alcuin of York wrote dramatically of the Lindisfarne raid that the “church was spattered with the blood of the priests of God, de...

Science May 25, 2016 by Chuck Bednar A new analysis of broken pottery fragments collected from various rural locations throughout east England has shed new light on the devastating impact of the Black Death, the fearsome pandemic that ravaged much of Europe between the years of 1346 and 1351. University of Lincoln Professor Carenza Lewis and her colleagues collected pieces of pottery from nearly 2,000 standard-sized test pits in more than 55 locations in six counties which were also settlements during the 14th century. These artifacts, the Guardian reported, were excellent indicators of the human population because they were commonly-used everyday items. By counting and comparing the number and weight of broken pottery pieces from differ...

A professor in the United Kingdom has used a creative way to measure the dramatic, dark legacy of the Black Death in England: analyzing old pottery shards. The plague claimed millions of lives in the 14th century. Fast forward to the 21st century, and in eastern England, over 2000 test pits excavated in six different counties revealed their contents. What the researchers discovered hints at the disastrous decline that those populations suffered at the hands of the plague. After analyzing the results, the researchers found a significant decline in pottery shards: a 45 percent decrease from the time period before the plague to after it.
