Comments: Northumberland is the northernmost shire of England, on the North Sea hard by the Scottish frontier. In Celtic times the home of the Otadini, the area did not come under Roman rule until the early mid-century, when the Emperor Antoninus erected his wall across Britain, and much of it was abandoned later when the Roman frontier was retired to Hadrian's older wall. Overrun by the Picts, Scots and Angles in the 5th century, the province became the heart of the Kingdom of Northumbria in the 7th century. It was later overrun by the Danes, not being incorporated into England until the early 10th century. Northumberland is under the Ecclesiastical jurisdiction of the Archbishop of York , as exercised by the Prince-Bishop of Durham , who holds extensive estates in the county. There is a little industry, but the province is primarily agricultural.
