|Forgive me for being rather parochial with this quiz, but maybe if you treat it as a learning exercise rather than a scoring opportunity, history addicts should certainly find it fascinating.|
Namyer Rus is the forgotten 'father' of my home English county of Surrey, the Saxon who forged a kingdom that stretched from the River Thames to the south coast.
His Saxon origins still remain in the names of numerous counties - Sussex, Middlesex, Essex (South, Middle and East Saxons).
But what of the man himself? That's what we'll be discovering.
