Archaeological work being done at St.Hilda's Church in Hartlepool has turned up an Anglo-Saxon grave. Other burials from the Early Modern period were also found, as the church is digging up a section of its floor to install a new heating system.
The discovery might be evidence that an Anglo-Saxon monastery existed on this site. Bede records that a nun named Heiu founded a monastery in the area named Heruteu in the 640s.
Dr Steve Sherlock, of Tees Archaeology, said: “It’s an exciting thing. We hope to do more work to understand it. It’s always presumed that there was a church here in Norman times in 1066. We note that the church is sited in the area of St Hilda’s Anglo-Saxon monastery, about 60ft north of the present church.
“It’s always been presumed that this church was the site of St Hilda’s Anglo-Saxon monastery. We haven’t found any trace of that, but this one burial may be one of the clues pointing towards that.”

The Conclave is over and a new Pope chosen, but the English never stood a chance. There has not, in fact, been an English Pope since Adrian IV in 1155.
A historian in Germany has come across a new collection of medieval Arabic stories - a kind of precursor to the famous book known as One Thousand and One Nights. Claudia Ott, a professor at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg, discovered The Book with the Story of the 101 Nights in a 13th century Andalusia manuscript.
The 101 Nights contains 17 stories, two of which can also be found in the 1001 Nights, with most set in India. Ott adds, “It is certainly not by chance that this backdrop has something Oriental about it when seen from an Arabic perspective. It is an image of an Orient that is far away, unfamiliar and exotic — for this reason, particularly attractive."
Ott first saw the manuscript on display at a museum in Berlin, and when she had the chance to look at, soon discovered its importance. She has translated the work into German.

SCAtoday.net experienced a brief outage (less than 30 minutes) Friday, and will be deliberately offline about 60 minutes, for a scheduled upgrade, this weekend. The upgrade is currently planned for early evening (U.S. Eastern time, GMT-4:00) on Saturday, April 13.
With the expansion of our great Kingdom moving into the technical age, Eastkingdom.org will require some extra assistance. The East Kingdom Web team is looking to start two new groups of gentles that can assist with moving forward with new technology.
The first is a group of gentles who have technical experience with WordPress. The duties of these positions will be to assist webministers who are using WordPress and are having technical issues. These gentles will provide assistance, advice and suggestions when needed.
The second group would become webministers at large. Qualified gentels will need to have experience in the technical side of web sites, maintaining the web site when needed, assisting other webministers, and becoming a warranted webminmister of the East.
For further information, please contact: email@example.com
Yours In Service,
