Just thought i would put this out there for anyone who had not seen this article. Pretty amazing really considering. Considering what you say?
Heres a few snips from the article
Between the fall of the Roman Empire and the 16th Century there are few verifiable records of Africans in England, and here was a black man buried in a medieval Christian friary in Suffolk.

It will be interesting to see how this unfolds and also what it changes?

Since he's one individual, my theory would be-
Englishman visits Africa, on trade or crusade...
While he's there, the African enters his employment, as a servant, and comes back with him.

This theory probably demands the supposition that the back condition developed after the return to England- and perhaps as a result of his employment?

I've just developed the theory a little further. Following on from the previous paragraph, his bad back would undermine his ability to be a useful servant. Perhaps his master would then pass him on to the friary (as a "lay servant" of some kind?), as a way of offering him "retirement", and that would explain the location of his burial.

Contrary to popular belief, Black people (Black Hebrews specifically, non African /non-Hammetic ) ruled basically all of Europe from 400A.D to 1400 A.D until the Renaissance, which is when whites slowly took over Europe hence the need for a Renaissance.
The main focus Renaissance art was to wipe out all the traces of blacks ruling there and to paint over everything black to white and steel history.

Movies like Kingdom of Heaven and Robin Hood are suppose to have an all Black cast but as we should all know by now, Jesus isn`t the only thing they painted white.

The Blacks Hebrews in Europe that were conquered by Whites during the Renaissance are from the same exact stock as the so called African slaves living in West Africa when Arabs, Africans and Whites put them in slavery.

One major lie about the slave trade that gets tossed around is that Africans sold themselves into slavery.
This was not the case, what it really was, was one dark race of people putting another dark race of people into slavery.

The Africans and everyone knew at the time the Blacks living in West Africa were Hebrews and of completely different bloodline, making it guilt free slavery.
Africans = Hammetic decent
Blacks from the slave trade = Shametic decent.

The Africans never took much liking to Hebrew blacks through out history.
Even today in African schools they are taught the Blacks that went into slavery are Hebrew and are not their people.

Also, not much people have done the research to know that the last slave ships came from Russia and England where Black Hebrews were living before being destroyed in the Renaissance.

There was a controlled effort to white wash history.

Also this News report is playing into the white washing by saying `there are few verifiable records of Blacks in England` which is not true, there is a lot of verifiable records of Blacks being the ruling class of England.

Who ever did that report is a moron, England still has places named by the Blacks that were ruling there like Blackmoor and Moorland.

Anyways theres 100`s of books that will tell the truth about who and what race was ruling where and what parts of Europe.
If your interested here are some links:

If the authorities were so anxious to conceal all signs of black people in England- don't you suppose they would have concealed this one too?

That was a rather ignorant question.
You should find out yourself instead of asking me, your a big boy now.

People still traveled after the fall of Rome you know. Africians weren't unknown. Why the suprise?

Funny. Sounds like someone is trying to blame "black jews" for the dark ages *even though that is widely believed to be a misnomer now by some*. I smell racism.
