The Wealth Of Anglo-Saxon England

Hay Festival 2013 , 

How did the Anglo-Saxons obtain the treasure that tempted Vikings to raid England frequently in the C9th and again between 980 and 1018? The historian traces the trade routes across Europe for silver, and reveals a highly urbanised, wealthy Anglia. Chaired by Jasper Rees.
