MOST RECENT

With the fall of East Anglia, the Great Heathen Army was replenished by the arrival of reinforcements. A Viking King called Baegsec, having heard of the successes of Ivarr, Halfdan and Ubba, brought a force to East Anglia in the hope of winning his own glory and riches. Their forces bolstered, the Vikings immediately fell upon Wessex. This assault came as a surprise, as it occurred during the dead of winter when few armies dared to risk campaigning due to the lack of supplies. The men of Wessex were caught off guard and the Great Heathen army quickly captured the town of Reading. Having won the town but suffering from lack of food, bands of Vikings roved the countryside, pillaging and plundering. Asser tells of how one large band led by a Jarl named Sidrac was confronted by a force led by a Mercian, Earldorman Aethelwulf of Berkshire, at a place called Englefield, and how 'battle was joined there resolutely by both sides.' The Vikings were bested in this clash, and Sidrac was slain. Buoyed by Aethewulf's victory, the army of Wessex under King Aethelred and his brother Alfred mustered their forces and swiftly marched on Reading, catching some of the Vikings unprepared outside the walls and hacking them down. This time there would be no stalemate as there had been at Nottingham four years earlier. Asser notes how the bulk of the Great Heathen Army sallied out from Reading: 'like wolves they burst out of all the gates and joined battle with all their might. Both sides fought there for a long time, and fought fiercely, but alas, the Christians eventually turned their backs, and the Vikings won the victory and gained the victory and were masters of the battlefield; and Earldorman Aethelwulf fell there, among others.' The small victory at Englefield was quickly undone, and the army of Wessex thrown back in defeat in the face of Viking fury. #alfredthegreat #aethelred #aethelwulf #reading #history #historical #vikings #wessex #anglosaxon #anglosaxons #middleages #medieval #medievalhistory
