Interesting that a 12th Century Anglo Saxon celebration would be marked by bread made of new corn, considering that corn was a crop indigenous to North America. Another proof, perhaps, that European contact with North America was widespread way earlier than generally held beliefs, along with the carved ear of corn on a Scottish church thought to have been done sometime in the 12th? century as well.
