Astrognome Weather Frost 1205 AD

Frost 1205 AD
On this day in 1205 a frost formed on the ground that lasted until the 22nd March, farmers were unable to plough the fields and planet their seeds. Due to this frost the price of wheat that summer was very high.

 It is thought that this great and fatal frost gives rise to the medieval belief that the 13th January, St Hilda`s Day, is the coldest of the year.
