    Ravenser Odd

    From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Ravenser Odd, also spelled Ravensrodd, was a port in the East Riding of Yorkshire, England, during the medieval period, built on the sandbanks at the mouth of the Humber estuary.

    The name Ravenser comes from the Viking 'Hrafn's Eyr' or "Raven's tongue" referring to the lost sandbank promontory, the modern successor of which is now known as Spurn Point. The town was founded by the Count of Aumale in the mid-thirteenth century, and had more than one hundred houses and a flourishing market by 1299, when it was granted a borough charter.

    In the 13th century the town was a more important port than Kingston upon Hull, further up the Humber, and was represented in the Model Parliament of 1295,[citation needed] but as the sandbanks shifted the town was swept away. Storms over the winter of 1356-57 completely flooded the town, leading to its abandonment, and it was largely destroyed by the Grote Mandrenke storm of January 1362. The site is now completely underwater.
