Compiled in the late 13th century at the Benedictine Abbey of St Benet at Hulme, Norfolk, this collection of chronicles begins with Geoffrey of Monmouth's bestselling 'History of the Kings of Britain'. It fills out Geoffrey's imaginative account of the Britons from their origins until the coming of the Saxons with a description of Britain, chronicles from the birth of Christ and the first Saxon kings to contemporary times, and a list of Benedictine monasteries in Canterbury. Between the 14th and 16th centuries, it belonged to Hickling Priory. At the top, the list of Benedictine houses ends.The names of Ely (Eliens), London (Londonicus), Norwich, Stratford, and Thetford are visible. In the middle of the page, the letter with a picture of Christ starts the annals from the birth of Christ to 1294. Later, during the 14th to 16th centuries, entries were added for years from the 7th century and 1503.
