The Anglo-Saxons represent one of the most vital and important periods in English history, but then why do we know so very little about them? Marc Morris, historian and author of The Anglo-Saxons: A History of the Beginnings of England, takes Nick Cohen on a journey though one of England’s most fascinating chapters, and how their influence is still felt today. “We’re taught about the Anglo-Saxons as young children, which means we only learn about them in basic terms.” “Only by the 18th century was Alfred the Great idolised, but there was a lot of the original Alfred which is worthy of admiration.” “English counties are basically as they were in the 10th century, and a great many villages and towns were founded by the Anglo-Saxons.” Presented by Nick Cohen. Produced by Andrew Harrison. Assistant producers: Jelena Sofronijevic and Jacob Archbold. Music by Kenny Dickinson. Audio production by Alex Rees.
