Murphysboro Centuries, 10th secular


Ethelstan, 924-940
- under Alfred the Great, the Danes had taken the northeast part of England, under Edward (899-924), the English began 'reabsorbing' the 'Danelaw,' that part of England controlled by the Danes - Ethelstan continued the process - it was approximately during his time that 'shire-reeves' (sheriffs) began enforcing the royal law in England
