Sinopsis:

Alfred, son of Æthelwulf, king of the West Saxons, ran. Behind him, the takers of his land and kingdom fanned out, searching for the fleeing king ... Buried in AD 899 as the king of the English at his capital city of Winchester, Alfred the Great’s bones were thought to have ultimately been moved to an unmarked grave. His remains had been completely lost to us for centuries until researchers at the University of Winchester discovered what is in all probability a piece of his pelvis in a cardboard box. This exciting discovery has reawakened interest in one of our most notable monarchs. The only English monarch ever to have had the epithet the Great’, Alfred’s reputation reaches down to us through the years. Christian hero, successful defender of England against the Vikings, social and educational reformer. There is a man and a life buried amid the myths. Within these pages, discover Alfred’s dramatic story.

About the Author:

Edoardo Albert is a writer of Sri Lankan and Italian roots whose work with archaeologists running the Bamburgh Research Project fired his imagination and interest in the Anglo-Saxon era. His trilogy of historical novels, The Northumbrian Thrones, is being published by Lion Fiction, and this is his second non-fiction book on the Anglo-Saxon period. Dr Katie Tucker made the astonishing discovery of the piece of pelvis in the museum at Winchester and analysed the bones. She is a human osteologist and archaeologist with many years of professional experience in excavation and the analysis of human remains. Dr Tucker will be instrumental in the forthcoming excavations for further remains of Alfred the Great. She is currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Winchester.
