'At last, one Eadmar, a very devout man, received a vision during which he was told that somewhere called Durham, or ‘Dun-holm’, would be a good place to take Cuthbert. According to a local tradition, of Cuthbert’s followers had any idea where Durham was at that time, but after wandering around in search of it for a while, they were met by a woman who was looking for her lost dun-coloured cow: this woman was able to point them in the right direction.'
Simon Webb's new book, based on the earliest historical sources, re-tells the extraordinary story of the founding of Durham, of the terrifying siege of the city that happened soon after it was founded, and of the life and death of Aldhun, the first bishop.
