The so-called Anglo-Saxon Chronicle was begun under King Alfred the Great, circa 890, and added to over the following centuries. The text is represented by nine surviving manuscripts (of which seven are in the British Library), whose texts vary according to where they were written; the version in the present manuscript is therefore known as the 'Worcester' Chronicle. For the annals of the earlier years after Christ there are relatively few entries. This pages spans 20 years, but has only four entries. The second (87 AD) records St. John the Evangelist writing the Apocalypse, and the third (100 AD) records the crucifixion of St. Simon.
