The year is 1014 AD, and a bitter war is raging in England. The old Danelaw is once again under the heel of the Danes, who yearly exact bloody tribute from the miserable English. The ousted English king Ethelred, recently returned from exile, plots vengeance on them, but lacks the means and the manpower to fight his own battles. His unlikely ally is Olaf Haraldsson, a young Viking adventurer and heir to the throne of Norway. The two have already crushed the Danish force in London, pulling down London Bridge and capturing the Viking fortress, but Olaf’s hunger for battle is undiminished. He scours the English countryside for the Danish warbands and any who might harbour them, coming at last to the outskirts of Jorvik. Will the Danes make a stand here, outside the walls of their old English stronghold? Will the men of York support them? And who will win in this clash of Viking vs Viking?
Welcome to the annual JORVIK Viking Festival!
