Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

This small kingdom led an obscure existence in the seventh and eighth centuries. It comprised present-day Worcestershire, part of west Warwickshire, and part of north Gloucestershire. It was in the end absorbed by Mercia, but its existence is reflected in the diocese of Worcester, established in 675 to look after the spiritual needs of the Hwicces.
