By the late 870s Wessex was last Anglo-Saxon kingdom standing, the rest having fallen to Danish armies. Alfred the Great retreated to the marshes of Somerset to lick his wounds and to prepare his strategy to reclaim England. This course will examine the reputation of Alfred the Great and the origins of the myth that Alfred burnt the cakes. It is anticipated that this course will be held at the King’s Manor.
