Description
This film chronicles the life and times of King Alfred, who lived from 849 to 899 A.D. Alfred, the only English king ever to be called "the Great," is remembered for his resistance to and victory over the attempted domination of the Vikings. He defeated the Norsemen and protected the unity of England. King Alfred is also known for his love of learning. He encouraged the bishops of the Anglo-Saxon church to teach the citizens of the realm to become literate. Alfred himself translated a number of ecclesiastical works from the Latin and added his own commentary. His story is told with commentary from historians, historical reenactments, and period imagery and artworks. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi

display_description"Few kings in English history deserve the title 'great' more than Alfred, King of Wessex. In a country devastated by Viking invasions, Alfred inflicted a major defeat upon the Norseman at Edington in 878 A.D. and set about conquering the Danelaw territory to secure the unity of England. A fine warrior and natural leader, he was also a lawmaker and a scholar. Includes location footage; re-creations and reconstructions; and commentary and analyses from leading authorities, art historians, and scholars"--From container.
