East Anglia derives its name and one of the definitions of its extent from the Anglo-Saxon kingdom that was effectively ended by the Viking invasion of 869. Within the context of medieval cultural history, it is best defined as comprising the dioceses of Norwich and Ely, effectively the same as the pre-1974 counties of Norfolk, Suffolk, and Cambridgeshire. However, there are cultural links across administrative boundaries. The churches of the Stour valley have to be considered as a group, whether situated in Suffolk or Essex. Similarly, there are links between manuscripts produced at Ely and Thorney and those emanating from Fenland monasteries beyond Cambridgeshire.
