Monastic Revival

ery little is known about Edmund I. He became king after the death of his step brother Athelstan. In 944 he recaptured Danish Mercia and the following year invaded Strathclyde. Like Edgar who would continue his work, he was responsible for the monastic revival. He became friendly with a Wessex monk by the name of Dunstan. Dunstan was appointed as abbot of Glastonbury and in 960, Archbishop of Canterbury. Edmund was supposedly murdered during a brawl with an outlaw within in his own walls.
