Another brilliant episode about Alfred the Great's grandson, King Athelstan (924-39) from UK historian Michael Wood's legendary 1979-81 BBC TV series 'In Search of the Dark Ages'.

In 934 he led a huge fleet and land army to Scotland to subdue the Scots as far as the rock at Dunnotar.

In 937 he gathered a huge Wessex-Mercian army to face a large alliance of invading Scots/Dublin Norsemen at Brunanburh (unidentified, probably either near Sheffield in the region between Mercia/Northumbia Wood called a ''Dark Age Vietnam'', or the Vale of York) in a ferocious pitched battle, in which the English prevailed.

In Search of the Dark Ages now finally on DVD!!!!!!!!!!
