ARG: AGM and a talk entitled 'King Alfred the Great and his response to the Great Heathen Army'.

St. Mary's Church Hall
Address: Darley Lane, Derby, DE1 3AX

Speaker, John Arnold.

When Alfred was born there were still four Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms but by the time of his death only Wessex survived with its own Anglo-Saxon royal household. This talk will examine why Wessex under Alfred was able to survive against Viking incursions whereas other states failed.
