Happy Days

975       Came a very great famine…

976       Here in this year was the great famine in the English race…

986       Here the great pestilence among cattle first came to England…

1005    Here in this year there was the great famine throughout the English race, such that no one remembered one so grim before…

1014    In this year on St. Michael’s Eve (September 28) that great sea-flood came widely throughout this country, and ran further inland than it ever did before, and drowned many settlements and a countless number of human beings…

1041     All that year was a very heavy time in many and various ways: both in bad weather and crops of the earth; and during this year more cattle died than anyone remembered before, both through various diseases and through bad weather.
