Battle of Beran Byrig
|Battle of Beran Byrig|
|Part of the Anglo-Saxon settlement of Britain|
|Commanders and leaders|
The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle entry for the year states: Her Cynric 7 Ceawlin fuhton wiþ Brettas æt Beranbyrg (This year Cuthwin and Ceawlin fought with the Britons at Barbury Castle).
Control of Barbury Castle is likely to have been important as it lies on The Ridgeway, a strategic communication route.
