Images[edit]

Are any coins minted by Aethelfrith known? Or a later depiction? This article is well written and referenced and quite close to GA status. IMHO, the biggest thing missing is an appropirate image and/or a map. Eluchil404 20:15, 25 August 2006 (UTC)

We have a map that would suffice, I suppose. It tries to locate and distinguish the various Anglo-Saxon peoples and groupings around 600. Everyking 07:51, 23 October 2006 (UTC)

Gododdin[edit]

In Rosemary Sutcliff's book The Shining Company, she assumes that Ælfrith was the opponent of the Gododdin in the battle of Catraeth. Is there any evidence for this, and if so, shouldn't it be mentioned? --71.126.180.229 16:31, 3 November 2006 (UTC)

I've added a note and a reference to a secondary source, but I don't know what the argument for making the identification is, so that could still be added. Mike Christie (talk) 13:23, 11 May 2007 (UTC)

Britons[edit]

I changed a number of references to "the British" to "the Britons." I think this makes it a bit clearer whom we're talking about, as any people from Britain could be called "British," could they not? Cadwaladr (talk) 20:41, 26 March 2009 (UTC)

Pronunciation[edit]

How do you pronounce Æthelfrith's name, and can that be added to the article? Thanks. --XndrK (talk · contribs · count) 01:43, 31 December 2013 (UTC)
