Course Description

How did Alfred of Wessex halt the Danish invasions? How did Athelstan of Wessex and his descendants consolidate these victories and conquer York and Northumbria? This module will consider the origins and early expansion of the Kingdom of Wessex, from Alfred and the ninth-century Viking Wars, to the revival of the House of Wessex under Edward the Confessor. This module will explore how the concept of an ‘England’ was created through military conquest, legislation, language, literature and the church.
