The interesting stuff from the previously mentioned era which contains some details making them more exciting.
These lines tell us about losses.A.D. 457. ... Hengest and Esc fought with the Britons on the spot that is called Crayford, and there slew four thousand men.A.D. 603. ... Aeden, king of the Scots, fought with the Dalreathians, and with Ethelfrith, king of the Northumbrians, at Theakstone; where he lost almost all his army.A.D. 607. ... Ceolwulf fought with the South-Saxons. And Ethelfrith led his army to Chester; where he slew an innumerable host of the Welsh; ... There were also slain two hundred priests, who came thither to pray for the army of the Welsh. Their leader was called Brocmail, who with some fifty men escaped thence.
(Oh I remember something similar from Bede here: >>12611
)A.D. 614. ... Cynegils and Cwichelm fought at Bampton, and slew two thousand and forty-six of the Welsh.

A.D. 661. ... at Easter, Kenwal fought at Pontesbury; and Wulfere, the son of Penda, pursued him as far as Ashdown.''
