Tamworth is the ancient capital of Mercia. The Anglo-Saxons came into Staffordshire in the late 6th century, as groups of settlers or tribes. Mercia, or Mierce in Anglo-Saxon, means boundary and Mercia as an area grew from a number of these separate tribes. The Mercians gradually conquered most of the other Midland tribes to become a powerful Kingdom stretching from the Humber to the Thames. The three main powerful kingdoms were Mercia, Northumbria and Wessex. Tamworth was the heartland of the Mercian Kingdom which had a royal church at Repton, a religious centre at Lichfield and the Kings main residence at Tamworth. Certainly the Mercian Kings spent more time at Tamworth than anywhere else. There is believed to have been a royal place at Tamworth by the end of the 7th century, on the site close to St. Edithas Church. Originally it would have been a timber hall with chapel and somewhere for horses to be stabled.
Evidence from signed charters shows that the Mercian Royal families stayed at Tamworth far more than their other palaces and were regularly here for the festivals of Christmas and Easter between 751 and 857 A.D. The most well known Mercian Kings are Penda, Wulfhere, Aethelred, Aethelbald and Offa. Tamworth is also known to have been important within Mercia, because it had a water mill which ground grain for food for the settlement and its livestock. The mill is believed to be the earliest (post Roman) watermill found in Britain. It was powered by the river Anker and used mill stones traded to King Offa from the French King Charlemagne, in exchange for English woollen cloaks. Mercian power began to decline after the death of King Offa and by the 10th century it lost its independence, becoming part of the Kingdom of Wessex to create the Kingdom of England.
Today, Mercia continues to herald its importance with the discovery of the Staffordshire Hoard, the largest ever discovery of Saxon gold. Found not far from the Capital of Mercia, and very close to the old Roman Road of Watling Street a few miles to the west of Tamworth, the Hoard appears to date from around 590 A.D. to 750 A.D. We may never know why it was buried or who it belonged to but hopefully in time it will unlock some of the secrets of the Saxon age, and Anglo-Saxon Tamworth.
