Stanzas 5-9 document Eysteinn Haraldsson’s raids along the eastern coast of Scotland and England during the summer and autumn of 1151.
For a discussion of these raids, see Poole 1980, Taylor 1965 and Anderson 1922, II, 215-18. The only Engl. source to mention Eysteinn’s harrying along the Engl. coast is Reginald of Durham’s Libellus de admirandis Beati Cuthberti virtutibus quæ novellis patratæ sunt temporibus from the end of the C12th, which records Eysteinn’s descent on the priory of Lindisfarne (in Raine 1835, 65-6; see also Bull 1916, 6-7 and A. Taylor 1965, 130-1).
