The Old English Bede: a new source for the F-version of the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle

Identifies the Old English Bede as the main source for annal 995 of the post-Conquest Domitian Bilingual, where its compiler puts into the mouths of some fictitious wise men a spurious account of Christ Church’s history reaching back to the time of Augustine, which they claim is ‘swa þu ræddan miht on Ystoria Anglorum’.
