- King Alfred’s Britain: War and Peace in the Viking Age
- King’s Manor
- Saturday 20 October
Britain’s Viking Age is not just a story of King Alfred’s Wessex pitted against foreign invasion. The epic narrative of this period is also deeply etched onto the landscapes and cultures of all Britain’s peoples. As Max will reveal, the key to understanding the Viking Age is to visualise that grand canvas.
Max Adams was an archaeologist before becoming a woodsman and writer. His best-selling book The King in the North was the first in a triology of early medieval explorations; the latest is Ælfred’s Britain: War and Peace in the Viking Age.
