King Pepin III restores the papal privileges in Tuscany territory; the Annals of Tigernach tell of a shortage of bread in Ireland. King Æthelwald of Northumbria is deposed at Pincanheale at a gathering of his own magnates, he is succeeded by a distant cousin of the late king Oswulf. The Zenata Berber tribe of Banu Ifran rebels against the Abbasid Caliphate, creates an independent state centered around Tlemcen, their tribal chief Abu Qurra rebuilds the city. European writings make the first known mention of a three-field system in use in medieval Europe; the crop rotation is the practice of growing a series of different types of crops in the same area in sequential seasons. Under this system, the land of an estate or village is divided into three large fields, makes a given section of land productive 2 years out of 3, instead of every other year.

NGC 67

NGC 67 is an elliptical galaxy located in the constellation Andromeda, discovered on October 7, 1855 by R. J. Mitchell, who described it as "extremely faint small, round"; the galaxy belongs to the NGC 68 group, which contains the galaxies NGC 68, NGC 69, NGC 70, NGC 71, NGC 72, NGC 74. Mitchell's position locates the observed galaxy between an E3 elliptical and an E5 elliptical on the edge of the galaxy group, each elliptical has been interpreted as the original and secondary. Wikisky lists the round galaxy as the primary and the elongated as PGC 138159, the Deep-Sky Objects browser lists the elongated as NGC 67, NED lists the same galaxy as both NGC 67 and NGC 67a. Courtney Seligman's NGC object database argues, that since the location offset of NGC 67 is similar to that of the other galaxies in the group, that the elongated galaxy is the observed object, that the rounder NGC 67a was listed as a star by Mitchell.
