BeschreibungPresents an analysis of the invasions that demonstrate beyond doubt that AEthelred (ruled England during the battle of Maldon in 991) was no indolent and worthless king who bribed the invading Vikings to go away. This book shows Swein Forkbeard (Viking adventurer) as a sophisticated politician who laid the foundations for a great northern empire.
