Pontefract, in Yorkshire, where he received from Wulfstan, archbishop of York, and the Northumbrian "witan" confirmation of their submission.
Archbishop Wulfstan seems to have been a centre of disaffection in the north, and in 95 2 Edred caused him to be imprisoned in the castle of "Judanburh," while in the same year the king, in revenge for the slaying of Abbot Eadelm, slew many of the citizens of Thetford.
In the same year Wulfstan was liberated and appointed to the Mercian bishopric of Dorchester.
At the same time he is said to have given the manor to Wulfstan, archbishop of York.
The enemy escaped, but a peaceful settlement was made by the good offices of Odo of Canterbury and Wulfstan of York.
Wharton in the second volume of his Anglia sacra (London, 1691) gives considerable portions of a life of Wulfstan which is an amplified translation of an AngloSaxon biography.
