A Look at the Western Kingdom: Vikings in Cornwall

The Viking Age, especially in the British Isles, is often associated with a few key places; such as Lindisfarne, London, Dublin, and of course York. However, the Viking world was a wide and varied place, and we plan to take a closer look at more of it with a particular focus on  places not commonly associated with the Vikings.

In this episode Lucas speaks to John Fletcher, author of the recently released The Western Kingdom: The Birth of Cornwall. Lucas and John discuss the very interesting, but lesser known Viking History of Cornwall.
