1. Really interesting segment – couple of questions if you have a sec: many successful insurgent campaigns are actually supported by a foregn power who want to see the current power overthrown – is there any evidence that Alfred had support from anyone outside his own kingdom? Also is it known what happened to Alfred’s family during this period – did Guthrum not look to use them as hostages? (apologies if either question is answered in subsequent podcasts!)
