Product Description

Product Description

Few kings in English history deserve the epithet "great" more than Alfred, King of Wessex. In an age and country blighted by Viking invasions, Alfred inflicted repeated defeats upon the Norsemen and set about administrating the Danelaw to secure the unity of England. The great king also organised his forces into a standing army and built a recognised navy. Alfred was not only a fine warrior but was also a deeply religious man, a scholar and lawmaker. Featuring superb atmospheric dramatised reconstructions, surviving period imagery and "eye-witness" reports, this programme provides a unique account of the life of one of England's truly great monarchs. Narrated by Peter Twist

Very much aimed at 12-16 year olds, safe and revealing of just how limited the knowledge of the Saxons is.

although the content was interesting the guy doing the talking just droned on and on with an incredibly boring voice that did not hold my interest. The acting was shoddy and unconvincing.
