|Bamburgh was destroyed and much plunder
seized there; after that, the force (the Viking army) came to the north of the Humber and
there did much evil, both in Lindsey and Northumbria.
Then a very great army was gathered and when they should have come together the war leaders were there first to set the example of flight: they were Fraena, Godwine and Frithegist. In the same year the King commanded Aelfgar, son of ealdorman Aelfric, blinded. (Anglo-Saxon Chronicle)
