History DocumentariesTime Team revisits Athelney Abbey, the hideaway of Alfred the Great. They search for traces of King Alfred’s fight against the Vikings. Previously the team found evidence of ironworking and discovered the Abbey built to commemorate Alfred’s victory but they believe there are still more discoveries to be made. The site is naturally defended by marshes and floodable land, making it an ideal base for Alfred’s fight against the Vikings. The team now has permission to dig and uncover more secrets of Alfred’s Hideaway in the marshes.
