King Æthelred the Unready and the Viking Conquest of England Lecture Series.
This is lecture 7.
In this episode Dr. Abels guides us into the reign of King Æthelred the Unready and the second round of Viking Wars and the Viking Conquest of England.
We begin by discussing the first Viking raids and what the primary sources say about them.
From an English victory to crushing defeats we watch the rise and fall of the English against the great Viking hoards. From political failures to unforgiving fields of battle such as the Battle of Maldon we explore a brutal and unforgiving series of events that the English people were not ready or prepared for.
