The Land of The Vikings - From Thames to Humber

£11.99

Product description

The area dealt with in this book is that part of England known to our Saxon ancestors as the Danelaw. It was here, between the Thames and Humber, that the Vikings, who harried our coasts in early Saxon times, were allowed by treaty with Alfred the Great to settle down and become respectable, or more or less respectable, inhabitants of this country. The Danelaw was for centuries a little country on its own, cut off by its geographical features from the rest of England, and here Saxon and Dane buried the traditional hatchet and, as there was no Press to remind them of anniversaries, forgot in time their ancient quarrel. The draining of the fenlands and marshes at various periods made the Danelaw part of the mainland, but the district has always been a peculiar distinctive area different in its clear-cut characteristics from any other part of England.
