Synopsis
This is a translation of the annals of Thorney Abbey, which was founded in the Cambridgeshire Fenlands in 971, and survived until the dissolution of the monastries in 1540. The early annals were entered retrospectively in 1110, but the annals appear to have been entered contemporaneously for the next three centuries. They record events of both national and local importance, and cover topics such as the succession of abbots and bishops, the price of wheat, floods, fires, epidemics, and royal successions. Occasional entries cover more unusual topics such as the sinking of the white ship, the beheading of Piers Gaveston, the suppresion of the Templars, the writings and trail of John Wycliffe, and the Black death. In this edition, the Latin text and English translation are on opposing pages, and an introduction, critical notes, and indices are provided.
