    The ninth-century Annales Fontanellenses are a concise set of monastic annals composed by the community of St Wandrille, situated along the lower reaches of the river Seine. Covering the 840s and 850s, their contents are concerned with a relatively brief but highly tumultuous period in the history of the Frankish realm, representing an eclectic range of reports on meteorological phenomena, politico-military proceedings, and the movements of viking hosts across the western Frankish kingdom. Considering the composition and content of the annals in their institutional and historiographical context, the present work furnishes the first annotated English translation of this often-overlooked text.
