    The year is 865. Dragon ships push up on the shores of East Anglia. But this is no raid—it’s the Great Heathen Army. They’re not here for treasure. They’re here to found a nation.

      at 2:53 you made an error on Guthrums body and instead of the G you put an A! just should warn you guys!
      could get other people who didn't search this up at age 7 confused!

    The face Guthrun made while looking at King Alfred of Angoland / Wessix made me think:

    "Anyone else think there should be a 'Heavy breathing' caption in parentheses there?"

                        I live about 25 miles from York, so I live deep within what was once the Danelaw, and yeah, even today, the area that was Danelaw is different to those that weren't, partially with wealth, partially with culture.

                            Fun Fact: The "Great Heathen Army" was probably no more than 1000 dudes. Though they were most likely veterans and heavily armored infantry. Which of course, would easily be able to defeat the conscripted peasant fyrds that most English armies were made of at the time.

                                                    If you accidentally traveled back in time (with only the clothes on your back) and met Alfred or Guthrum, what single piece of knowledge from this time would you give that person to help improve their chances of victory?

                                                                                          The way Alfred and Guthrum are depicted is simply borderline Bugs and Daffy levels of humor.
