Little is known about Simeon of Durham himself. The only firm date we have, is 1104, for he was present at the opening of St. Cuthbert's tomb. His ‘History’ spans the period from 616 to 1129. As a source book of history it is of special value for its accounts of the northern provinces of England, and the affairs of the Kingdom of Northumbria.
