Hugh Lupton needs little introduction, well known in this genre, this book will make fascinating reading,
and a great stocking filler for christmas, or as a birthday present
This work also gets into a muddle over King Edmund, the last king of the ancient Kingdom of East Anglia, which consisted of the two counties of Suffolk and Norfolk plus a small part of Cambridgeshire east of the Devil's Dyke. Although everyone knows that Edmund was killed by the Danes in the village of Hoxne (pronounced 'Hoxen') in Suffolk, this work seeks to throw doubt on this to try and have him martyred in Norfolk, which he wasn't.. If you go to Hoxne day local people will show you the bridge built on the site of the ancient bridge he was hiding under and from where he was inadvertently betrayed to the Danes by a wedding party. King Edmund's palace was situated at Rendlesham in Suffolk, the seat of the kings of East Anglia for nearly 300 years.
The ancient kings of the East Angles were known as the Wuffas, because they were sesended from King Wuffa. 'Wuffa' comes from the old Anglo-Saxon word for 'wolf', the wolf being the emblem of the Wuffas.Read more ›
