FESTIVAL 17 The Danish Conquest of 1016
Everyone has heard of the great battles of 1066, but what most people haven’t heard about is the other time England was conquered and had a foreign king sit on the throne.
It is that conquest, the Danish Conquest of 1016, that Justin brings to life in this engaging talk in honour of it’s 1,000 year anniversary. Hear of the dramatic power struggles of ‘un-ready’ English kings and dangerous foreign powers threatening the coasts of Britain.
Justin Hill is the author of Shieldwall, a novel on the Danish conquest of 1016 and the bitter internal power struggles that left Anglo-Saxon resistance vulnerable to the Danes.
