577 A.D. - Pope Gregory and The Angles
About the year 577 A.D. a number of slaves were seen on the market place in Rome and one of the onlookers was one Gregory. The fair faces and golden hair of these slaves attracted him and he asked a trader from whence they came. He was told they were Angles from Deira (Castleford was included in the Province of Deira). When Gregory became Pope he sent Augustine to this country to convert the Angles.
