In 1008 Æthelred ordered that a huge English fleet be built, but feuds involving Eadric’s kin limited its usefulness, and it did not prevent the arrival in 1009 of another immense Viking army led by Thorkell the Tall. This army ravaged much of southern England, and only stopped after the payment of tribute of £48,000 in 1012. The fourth phase, from 1013 to 1016, again saw two major invasions, both of which culminated in the conquest of England, by Swein in 1013 and Cnut in 1016.
Simon keynes 10 ÆLFRIC BATA ÆLFRIC BATA (fl. s. xi|), a student of the more famous *Ælfric of *Eynsham, is known only as the author of Latin scholastic *colloquies. Nothing is known of his life (evidence that he might have been involved in a dispute with Canterbury over land is late and of uncertain relevance), and the significance of his epithet or cognomen, Bata, is unknown as well. From his pen we have two works: the Colloquia, an extensive classroom colloquy which throws fascinating light on students’ life in a monastic *school (and includes extensive quotation from the Old Testament wisdom books, which were presumably required classroom reading), and the Colloquia difficiliora, a similar but shorter work which contains much difficult vocabulary, much of it drawn from *Aldhelm.
