Spartans by Chris Collingwood. (P)


Spartans by Chris Collingwood. (P)

In 480 BC the Spartans tried to defend the pass at Thermopylae against the Persians led by Xerxes. The Persian fleet had sailed along the coastline from northern Greece into the Gulf of Malia on the eastern Aegean Sea towards the mountains at Thermopylae. The Greek General and King Leonidas led the Greeks and tried to defend the pass of Thermopylae. All the defending Spartans were killed during the Battle of Thermopylae. Their defence and courage provided inspiration to the Greeks, and the following year the Greeks won battles against their old enemy the Persians.

Hingston Down 837

The Danish were joined by the people of Cornwall in an attack on southwestern Britain but at Hingston Down they were met by King Egbert of Wessex. His army defeated them and as a result Cornwall was added to his empire.

Aclea 851

Aclea, south of the Thames, was a major battle between the Danish invaders and the Saxon King of Wessex (Ethelwulf). At Aclea King Ethelwulf and his army and succeeded in repelling the Danes after a bitter battle.

York 867

A group of Danes led by Ivan the Boneless ventured toward York to avenge Ivan's father who was killed in Northumbria. The two kings of Northumbria united their armies and drove the Danes against the city walls. The advantage was not pursued properly and in the ensuing fight both kings were killed and many men besides. York fell to the Danish and became a stronghold.

Hoxne 870

The battle was fought between Edmund king of East Anglia and the Vikings, and resulted in defeat for the Saxons. It is alleged that Edmund was beheaded for refusing to renounce Christianity.

Ashdown 871

The Vikings had managed to take many of the Saxon kingdoms and had occupied London with a camp at Reading but Wessex remained unconquered. King Ethelred I and his brother Alfred led an army to meet the charge of the Vikings. On January 8th Alfred led the charge of the Saxons and when the Vikings retreated they pursued.

Reading 871

Ethelred I and brother Alfred led an assault on the Danish stronghold of Reading. Although the Saxons charged the camp they could not penetrate the entrenchments and were driven from the field taking heavy casualties.

Wilton 871

The death of Ethelred I meant that Alfred had to take over the kingdom of Wessex. It was then that the Vikings assaulted Wilton though they were held off at first, when they faked a retreat the Saxon army were taken in and pursued. The Danes turned about and attacked with great success. Alfred's army was depleted and so he offered a tribute to the Danes (Danegeld) if they would withdraw to London.

Chippenham 878

The Danes under new leadership of Guthrum had started to raid neighbouring counties in 877 despite the 5 year peace treaty secured by Alfred. In January the Danes took Alfred's headquarters, Chippenham, by storm. Surprised, many of the Saxons army were killed and Alfred became a fugitive at Athelney in Somersetshire.

Edington 878

It was here that Alfred the Great launched his counteroffensive against the Vikings in Wiltshire. The Saxon warriors marched toward the Danes camped at Chippenham while the Danes marched towards the Saxons. They met at Edington and battled at close quarters for hours until Alfred's army gained the upper hand. Defeated, Guthrum, leader of the Danes, surrendered and was later baptized. All southern Britain came under the rule of Alfred.

Tettenhall 910

Alfred the Great died in 899 leaving his son Edward and daughter Ethelfleda to succeed. Peace between the Saxons and Danes was broken by the Vikings and forced Edward to fight the battle of Tettenhall. Edward the Elder won a decisive victory and as a result expanded his rule to the Humber.
