Here is a collection of my articles and stories which you might find of interest.
- The origin of the series – an article which explains the inspiration behind The Shadow of the Raven Series.
- So, did Alfred really burn the cakes? – an article about the myths and legends which surround one of the greatest kings in English history.
- Alfred and the Vikings: In 793, a surprise attack on an otherwise peaceful monastery at Lindisfarne marked the beginning of one of the most turbulent periods in English history. In this series I hope to provide an overview of events to explain what happened and why. Whilst the facts I’ve cited are not all universally accepted, they are gleaned from the research I undertook for my books in The Shadow of the Raven Series
- The role of horses in battle at the time of Alfred the Great
