It was built along the English/Welsh border to prevent invasion and its remnants have been measured at being 64 miles long from one coast to the other.

Ceolnoth - Little is know of his history until he became Archbishop of Canterbury in 833. His major preoccupation, however, were dealing with the Viking raids that continued, especially on isolated monestries and it is noted that there was a decline in the production of manuscripts during this period from disruption of the Scriptorums. He is recorded having founded the close co-operation between the post of Archbishop of Canterbury and the future Kings of England.
