Photographs from the Jorvik Festival 2006:
King Athelstan leading his Anglo-Saxon army in the battle arena.
The Viking Army read for battle
Army shield-walls begin to clash!
Vikings behind the wall throw spears at the enemy!
The final few engage in a tense raging battle fury to survive!
The Vikings are too few and eventually all succomb to the sword.
