A.D. 1065. KEVEXGE OF DUNSTAN AND GLONIEJiN. 129 promised that they would pay tribute, and outlawed their own king, Grifiin. In the year 1064, Griffin, king of the Welch, was slain by his people on the nones of August, and his head, and the head of his ship with its ornaments, was sent to duke Harold, who afterwards presented them to king Edward. After this, king Edward gave the country of the Welch to his brothers, Blethogent and Rithwalan; on which, to him, and to duke Harold, they took the oath of fealty, and that at their command they would be ready for them both by land and by sea, and would obediently render all things that had been rendered before from that land by its former kings. In the year 1065, the venerable man, Egelwin, bishop of Durham, raised from his tomb the bones of Saint Oswin, formerly king of Bernicia, in the monastery which is near Tyne-mouth, four hundred and fifteen years after his burial, and with great honor enclosed them in a shrine. Harold, the brave duke of Wessex, in the month of July, ordered a great building to be erected in the country of the Welch, at a place which is called Portaseith,22 and many things for eating and drinking to be there coUected, that his lord, king Edward, might be enabled to stay there some time, for the sake of hunting. But Caradoc, the son of Grifiin, king of the South Welch, whom a few years previously Griffin, king of the North Welch, had slain on invading his kingdom, came thither on the day of Saint Bartholomew the Apostle, with aU he could muster, and slew nearly aB the workmen together with those who inspected them, and carried off all the good things that were coUected there. After this, on the fifth day before the nones of October, being the second day of the week, the thanes of Northumber-« land, Dunstan, son of Agelnoth, and Gloniern, son of Eardulph, came from Gamelbarn to York, with two hundred soldiers; and, in revenge for the shameful death of the Northumbrian nobles, the thanes Cospatric (whom queen Egitha, for the sake of her brother Tosti, had ordered to be treacherously assassinated in the royal palace, on the fourth night of the Nativity of our Lord), and Gamel, the son of Orm, and Ulph, the son of Dolphin, whom, in the preceding year, earl Tosti had treacherously ordered to be slain at York, in his 22 Portheswet, near Chepstow.
