Invasions of the Vikings. History of Britain (история Британии). Before the end of the 8th century, the British Isles were raided again by another non-Christian people, from Scandinavia. In 793 the Vikings, as we call them, destroyed the monastery of Lindisfarne, drowning some of the monks and stealing precious objects. What made Alfred a great man was not just his military victories but his statesman-ship. After years and years of bloody conflict, he saw the futility of trying to destroy the Danes by force. He believed that a man who grows content will cease to be a dangerous enemy, and he was determined to reach friendly agreement with the defeated Danes. This he did. His treaty with Guthrum gave the Danes a large part of eastern England, where Alfred hoped they would settle down as peaceful farmers.

Nice under-the-radar single which came along at the height of the whole 'Roxanne' saga in mid 1985.Worth noting that this record was scratched-up by Hijack (the words 'rhyme undercover' - cleverly starting the word halfway to seemingly say 'I'm Undercover') when they used for it briefly for their Style Wars 12".
