The Viking Wars of Alfred the Great's Britain - full documentary

1 Просмотры
Alfred the Great, King of the West Saxons, came to power in the midst of a crisis for the Anglo Saxon Kingdoms of Britain. Viking attacks had escalated into full scale invasions, and King Alfred faced a series of devastating battles for the very existence of his kingdom. In this documentary, we look at Alfred's rise to power, his epic clashes with the great Viking armies of 9th century Britain - including the Battle of Edington in 878, and his efforts at reforming and strengthening the Anglo-Saxon territories under his rule.
