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 â€˜Historyâ€™ 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.
