'Athelney & Ethandun 878', (1935). Map of part of the west of England (modern Somerset, Dorset, Wiltshire and Hampshire), showing Athelney, which was once the fortress hiding place of King Alfred the Great. From there he went on to defeat the Danes at the Battle of Edington (or Ethandun) in May 878. The map also shows Roman roads and tracks, Alfred's 'Burhs' (Old English fortifications), Danish forts, and significant sites during the period of Viking invasion. From A History of the Anglo-Saxons, Vol. II, by R. H. Hodgkin. [The Clarendon Press, Oxford, 1935]
