Storyline

The year is 872, and many of the separate kingdoms of what we now know as England have fallen to the invading Danes, leaving the great kingdom of Wessex standing alone and defiant under the command of King Alfred. Against this turbulent backdrop lives our hero, Uhtred. Born the son of a Saxon nobleman, he is captured by the Danes and raised as one of their own. Forced to choose between the country of his birth and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are ever tested. What is he? Saxon or Dane? On a quest to reclaim his birthright, Uhtred must tread a dangerous path between both sides if he is to play his part in the birth of a new nation and, ultimately, recapture his ancestral lands.

Trivia

Many of the small buildings shown in the series are built of thatch and stone. Saxons built only in wood and thatch or wattle and daub 'mud huts' except for churches and some palaces - Alfred's palace is reputed to have been of stone with glazed windows as shown. There were Roman buildings surviving in Britain during the Saxon period but ordinary Saxons avoided them as they believed them haunted. This is seen by the fact that most Saxons in London chose to build their wooden dwellings outside the Roman city's wall in the area that is now Westminster rather than occupy the stone buildings within the 'old' city. This habit of building in wood has caused the term 'Dark Ages' due to the lack of archaeological evidence left from the period. See more »

Goofs

The symbols for the Danes/Vikings is wrong. It is well documented that they used raven images on their flags and other things. The reason is the raven is Odin's messenger in Norse mythology. See more »

Captivating!

With the plethora of mediocre historical series out there, I did not expect much from this show. I, however, was utterly blown away by how compelling it is, and by the excellent acting by all. The subject matter is fascinating, and it depicts well the harshness of living, and surviving, in a barbarous world, with an emerging, equally barbarous "new" religion. The casting was terrific. The actor who played Scorpa, the Dane of the White Horse, was beyond fierce. An unforgettable presence. I was especially, impressed by the lead, Alexander Dreymon, whom I had never seen before. As the series progresses, you really see this guy's acting chops. His range is from the tender to the ferocious. He has a bunch of us hooked, and we cannot wait for the next season.

Thank you for entertaining us!
