The Anonimalle Chronicle[edit]

@Johnsoniensis: - thanks for adding in this section but it really does need additional in-line references to help make sense of the relevance to this topic. I presume that because you have added it so eruditely that you are familiar with the work and the bibliography associated with it. It'd be very useful to get some of those involved if so.

On reflection it might be better to make it into a stand alone article. All the details are extracted from the Brotherton Collection book which is cited. I presume the author of that account based it on what V. H. Galbraith says in his 1927 edition of part of the chronicle. There may be some later scholarly literature but I have not searched for it. There is no doubt of the chronicle's notability but short articles with only one source are in some danger of being deleted.--Johnsoniensis (talk) 17:19, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
P.S. Some improvements have been made; the source I used says the chronicle "has claims to be considered the most important chronicle written in northern England in the later Middle Ages".--Johnsoniensis (talk) 21:45, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
