In 865, a great army Viking landed in the East Anglia, triggering a series of wars that lasted until the middle of the following century.It was in this time of crisis that the modern kingdoms of Great Britain were born.In their responses to the Viking threat, these kingdoms have forged their identity as hybrid cultures: dynamic and entrepreneurial peoples adapt to instability and opportunity.Traditionally, AElfred the Great is cast as the central actor in the history of the Great Britain Viking Age.But Max Adams, while underlining AElfred’s genius as warlord, god’s law, and builder of the English nation, has a more nuanced and colourful approach to the narrative.Great Britain met by the Scandinavians of the ninth and tenth centuries, was one of the regional diversity and conscious of cultural identity: Pictes, Dal Riatans and Strathclyde British; Bernicians and Deirans, East Anglians, Mercians and Western Saxons.
