Buried in 899 CE as the king of the English at his capital city of Winchester, Alfred the Great's bones were thought to have been moved sometime later to an unmarked grave. They remained completely lost for centuries, but recent discoveries have reawakened interest in this heroic figure. Including chapters by Dr Katie Tucker describing her amazing discovery of Alfred's remains, this book tells the story of the only English monarch ever to have earned the epithet 'the Great'.
