Events[edit]

By place[edit]

Europe[edit]

Britain[edit]

  • A Viking fleet of 350 vessels enters the Thames Estuary before turning north, and engages the Mercian forces under King Beorhtwulf. The Mercians are defeated, and retreat to their settlements. The Vikings then turn south and cross the river somewhere in Surrey; there they are slaughtered by a West Saxon army, led by King Æthelwulf and his son Aethelbald, at Oak Field (Aclea).[1]
  • King Æthelstan, the eldest son of Æthelwulf, is killed by a Viking raiding party. He is succeeded by his brother Æthelberht, who becomes sub-king of Kent, Essex, Surrey and Sussex (approximate date).
  • Beorhtwulf dies after a 12-year reign, and is succeeded by his son Burgred as king of Mercia.

Al-Andalus[edit]

By topic[edit]

Aviation[edit]

  • Abbas ibn Firnas, Muslim physician and inventor, makes a first recorded tower jump in Córdoba. He wraps himself with vulture feathers and attaches two wings to his arms. The alleged attempt to fly is unsuccessful, but the garment slows his fall enough that he only sustains minor injuries.[2]
