Five years ago Oxfordshire celebrated its 1,000th birthday, but I remember thinking at the time —and I hate to carp — that surely counties, like languages, came into existence gradually, rather than with a single event.

How Norman was the saint and king, Edward the Confessor, born in Islip in about 1005, and now regarded as one of the last Anglo-Saxon kings? Answer: very. He left England for Normandy when he was only eight years old, and did not return for 28 years — apart from a short visit in 1036, following the death of his step-father King Canute of Denmark and England. Then he reappeared here in 1041, the year before he became King of England.
