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

The second season covers books 3 and 4 of Bernard Cornwell's Saxon Chronicles - The Lords of the North and Sword Song. The Lords of the North spans 3 years, 878-881. Sword Song covers 2 years, 885-887. The story began in 866, with a 9 year old Uhtred (12 years old in the TV show) which means Uhtred is 30 years old by the books reckoning and 33 according to the show, at the conclusion of season two.

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!
