Alfred of Wessex and his heirs built a unified, ideologically coherent English state, with systematic local government and tight control of the coinage.

    Students can debate the size and ferocity of the late ninth-century Viking attacks, and the extent to which they altered the political map by destroying some states, allowing others to expand and the economic map by linking Britain and Ireland to Scandinavian trade networks. In the same vein, the son-in-law reveals that Agricola dreams of conquering Ireland. Experience this for yourself as we step ashore at one of the many remote islands in the region. The paper engages critically with three linear narratives of historical change: of progressive liberation and the rise of individual freedoms; of increasing regulation and discipline; and of continuity in human biology and desires.
