Ignoring the sagas above, this was a fantastic battle.

On the Saxon right flank, Phil led his Saxon horde to a glorious defeat and ceded command of the kingdoms to me (Rob) by fleeing the field.

However, my king fell heroically in battle as the Vikings commanded by Steve, having crushed Phil, then dealt with my battered forces. These had been in a bitter struggle with Jens valiant Viking warriors, who seem to have been supplied with incredibly blunt axes :mrgreen: but still did enough to ensure the Vikings took the field.

We will re gather our warriors, bury the slain and return again

Heres the pictures, all taken from the Saxon side of the field
