Quote from Nineteenth Century Literature article[edit]

In 870 the Danes invaded and took Edmund prisoner. The Christian king refused to rule as the retainer of a pagan overlord, an act of defiance for which the Danes bound him to a tree, scourged him, shot him through with arrows, and hacked off his head. The Danish invaders, caring nothing for Christian burial, left Edmund's body where it fell but hid the head in the forest of Hoxne. When Edmund's followers searched for his remains, they allegedly heard the severed head cry out "here, here," and followed a wolf to the place where it lay hidden. Having re- gained body and head, the retainers buried both parts of the martyred king in a tomb at Hoxne, and the slain monarch im- mediately acquired martyr status as St. Edmund the King (see Gransden, pp. 137-38). Sometime in the next seventy years the saint's complete body was moved to Beodricsworth, after- ward named St. Edmundsbury, which came under the rule of Benedictine monks in 1028.
