The last episode ended with an account by Ethelweard which told us that after the arrival of AEthelnoth, Alfred was attacking Guthrum on a daily basis. Alfred was no longer just trying to survive, he was trying to take his kingdom back.

    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!)
