Message 1 - posted by Aiden , Nov 5, 2005

Ancient Northumbria stretched from The Humber in the south to the river Forth in the north and was the most powerful Kingdom in Anglo-Saxon Britain.
Modern Northumbria is a unique and distinctive region and consists of Teesside & the counties of Tyne and Wear, County Durham and Northumberland.
People and places who changed the North east and the North-easterners who changed the world.

This is some form of spam. the exact same message has been posted before. It doesn't even make sense.

This is not spam.
There is no reason why this region shouldn't be promoted in a positive way, with particular reference to our unique and distinctive past.
One example of our unfair treatment at the hands of London is the refusal to return the Lindisfarne Gospels home.
They are kept in London , a city with which they have no historical connection.
They should be brought home to Durham Cathedral to be next to the final resting place of the patron saint of Northumbria - St Cuthbert - in whose honour they were created.

Impressive Website. Good to see we can FINALLY put links on the message board. Onecitizen isnít it awful to see how many Counties they have left out. No Cheshire as usual and there is Grumbles on the Tyne board about there not being a Northumberland board. Middlesbrough was in Northumbria in days of old but now it seems to be a blanket for Northumberland, Durham and "Teesside" or "Teesdale" or "Tees valley" or "Cleveland" or "People's Democratic republic of Middlesbrough". Whatever the buzz word is at the time.

Thankyou for that reply , I think that perhaps there needs to be certain levels of population in a particular boards area to generate enough messages to make a board worthwhile.

Yes, an impressive website. Is there a strong feeling in the N.E that the ancient region of Northumbria should be restored as opposed to the unelected
N.E. Assembly introduced by the London government ? Is there a stong sense of local loyalty and identity for this region or is there a separate campaign for more autonomy for Yorkshire ? In Cornwall a recent poll showed that over 50% are in favour of a devolved Cornish assembly or "Senedh Kernow" and all five Cornish Lib Dem MP's support the campaign.

The map below shows how Britain could have looked if the Normans were defeated in 1066 and the unification of England that began under King Athelstan proved to be as temporary as other previous efforts to bring the whole of England (and later Britain) under one king. Over time, the boundaries of the Anglo-Saxon Heptarchy and the Celtic nations, which had previously been subject to fluctuations, eventually settled into a fixed pattern, much as the boundaries between the Home Nations of the UK did. The map represents what the boundaries might have looked like today.
