We the Holy Monks and Nuns of the monastery of Lindisfarne have commited a grave sin against God, for he has punished us. I people I have never seen before (Whom we can the Danes) have invaded our holy sanctuary and murdered many of my brethren. I pray to God for forgiviness and have prayed hourly in hopes that God may spare me and the rest of the people of my land.
We are now one. Athelstan has united all of the tribes of our people and formed the English people. I have hope for the future. I now know that we the people of the Anglo Saxon empire may live in peace and be prosperous.
Today, a mysterious man has arrived in our land to preach a new message. His message is what he refers to as "the gospel". He speaks of a man named Jesus, whom will cleanse us of our sins. I am starting to believe in this man, and looking to the heavens in hopes that I will one-day reach that beautiful place.
On this amazing day, the amazing man that is King Alfred the Great of Wessex has pushed back the vikings in their attempt at conquest! Due to this, and his various amounts of attributions to the empire, Alfred has stylized himself as King Alfred the Great, and this is unanimously supported.
Today on this fateful day, We have fallen. The Normans have taken over our land in the Battle of Hastings and we have fallen. It was reported that Duke William had 10,000 soldiers and King Harold had 7,000. The background for this battle was that Edward the Confessor was childless when he died, and there was dispute over the throne.
