The Viking Wars of King Alfred’s Britain

Real Crusades History has produced a stellar documentary on the Anglo-Saxon King Alfred the Great and his battles against the pagan Vikings: “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.”
