Can you feel it? It feels like there is a lull before the storm. AEthelred Unread is now gone, and Normandy is now officially on the board. 1066 is on the doorstep.

And what you’re about to hear is part one of a two part series on one of England’s best stories that you’ve likely never heard. It’s the story of the Rise and Fall of Edmund Ironsides. This is a story of a forgotten civil war, a legendary warrior, and the fall of the line of Alfred the Great.
And the story starts in the North.
