Documentary about the 878 AD Viking attack on the Saxon kingdom ruled by Alfred the Great. Forced to flee to the Somerset marshes after the Tweflth Night attack, a defeat seemed probable for Alfred and his forces but they prepared to fight again and proved victorious against the Vikings in the ensuing battle. With contradicting theories about what really happened, historians Tim Saunders and Andrew Duff attempt to provide new insight on the events surrounding the invasion.
