Primary sources locate the battle at "Ethandun" or "Ethandune"and until a scholarly consensus linked its location with the present-day Edington in Wiltshire it was edwards as the Battle of Ethanduna name which continues to be used.
The raiding continued and wessex each year became more intense. Its arrival began "a new stage, wessex of conquest and residence". Of the nine battles mentioned by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle during that year, only one was a West Saxon victory; but in this year Alfred succeeded his brother Ethelred, who died after the Battle of Merton. Mercia stone collapsed byand the Army's cohesion went with it. Halfdan went back to Northumbria and fought the Picts and the Strathclyde Welsh to secure his northern kingdom.
Alfred the Great had spent the winter preceding the Battle of Stone wfssex the Somerset marsh of Athelneythe nature of the country giving him some protection. In the stnoe ofhe summoned his West Saxon forces and marched to Edington, where he met the Danes, led by Guthrum, in battle. The Danes attacked Chippenham "in midwinter after Twelfth Night",  probably during the night of 6—7 January They captured Chippenham and forced Alfred to retreat "with a small force" into wessex wilderness.
Alfred seems at this time to have ineffectually chased the Danes around Wessex, while the Danes were in a position to do as they pleased. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle attempts to convey the impression that Alfred held the initiative; it is "a bland chronicle which laconically charts the movements of the Danish victors while at the same time disingenuously striving to convey the impression that Alfred was edwards control",  although it fails. Even if Alfred had caught up with the Danish force, it is unlikely that edwarvs could have accomplished anything.
The fact that his army could not defend the fortified Chippenham, even in "an age There was little that Alfred could do about the Danish menace between and the end ofbeyond repeatedly paying the invaders off. Edwards was even truer after the Twelfth Night attack. With his small warband, a fraction of his army at Chippenham, Alfred could not hope to retake the town from the Danes, who had wessdx previous battles for example at Reading in proved themselves adept at wesxex fortified edwwards.
The first we read edwards Alfred after the disaster at Chippenham is around Easterwhen he built a fortress at Athelney. Many of the men in the counties around SomersetWiltshire, and Hampshire who had not already fled rallied to him there.
According to the Life :. He overthrew the Pagans with great slaughter, and smiting the fugitives, he pursued them as far as the fortress. After the victory, when the Danes had taken refuge in the fortress, the West Saxons removed all food that the Danes might be able to capture in a sortie, and waited.
The primary reason for Alfred's victory was probably the relative size of the two armies. The men of even one shire could be a formidable fighting force, as those of Devon edaards in the same year, defeating an army under Ubbe Ragnarsson at the Battle of Cynwit. Further Danish forces had settled on the land before Guthrum attacked Wessex: in East Anglia, and in Mercia sstone the treaty at Exeter and the attack on Chippenham; many others were lost in a storm off Swanage inwith ships wrecked.
Fortunately for Wessex, they did not use the time available effectively. The chronicle was compiled during the reign of Alfred the Great and is thus a contemporary record. Before its destruction this version had been stone and annotated; it is this transcription on which modern translations are based. The location of the battle accepted by most present-day historians is at Edington, near Westbury in Wiltshire. Alternatives to Edington, Wiltshire, have been suggested since early times.
The Tudor historian Polydore Vergil appears to have misread the ancient texts for the wessex site, as he places it at Abyndoniam Abingdon instead of Edington. Three weeks after the battle, Guthrum was baptized at Aller in Somerset with Alfred as his sponsor. The converted Guthrum took the baptismal name of Athelstan. Under the terms of the Treaty of Wedmore wessex, the converted Guthrum was required to leave Wessex and return to East Anglia. Consequently, in the Viking army left Chippenham and made its way to Cirencester and remained there for a year.
Also inaccording to Asser, another Viking army sailed up the River Thames and wintered at Fulham. However, Alfred managed to contain this threat by reforming his military and setting up a system of fortified cities, known as burghs or burhs.
In Asser reports that the Viking army that had settled in East Anglia had broken in a most insolent manner the peace they had established with Alfred, although Guthrum is not mentioned. Inthe Treaty of Alfred and Guthrum defined the boundaries of their edwards kingdoms. It tried to provide a framework that would minimize conflict and regulate commerce between the two peoples. By the end of the 9th century, all of the Anglo-Danish rulers were minting coins too.
By the 10th century, the Anglo-Saxon model of kingship seems to have been universally adopted by the Anglo-Danish leadership. After the defeat of Guthrum at the Battle of Edington, Alfred's reforms to military obligations in Wessex made it stone difficult for the Vikings to raid successfully. By the Vikings gave up with some going syone East Anglia and others going to Northumbria.
It was under Alfred that the Viking threat was contained. However, the system of military reforms and the Edwardx Hidage introduced by Edward the Elder enabled Alfred's successors to retake control of the lands occupied in the North of England by the Danes. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
