Photographs of four charters relating to the monastery of St. Denis at Paris, now among the Archives de France:
  1. A Latin confirmation by king Offa to St. Denis of lands at Lundenuuic (London), etc., A.D. 790, with seal
  2. A Latin restitution by king Ædgard (Eadgar) to St. Denis of land at Hastings, etc., A.D. 960, with seal
  3. A Latin and Old English grant by Edward the Confessor to St. Denis of Teintun (Taynton in Oxfordshire), A.D. 1059, with seal
  4. A Latin grant by William the Conqueror to St. Denis of the church of Deerhurst in Gloucestershire, A.D. 1069
The first two are forgeries (see Eng. Hist. Rev. vi. 736), but may be based on facts: the last two may be genuine.
