In the 9th century, a massive army of Vikings stormed these shores. Several thousand strong, it was one of the biggest fighting forces ever to invade Britain, but it left little trace of its bloody conquest on the landscape. Now, a team of archaeologists set out to prove that a mass grave discovered in a vicarage garden in Derbyshire is the last resting place of this great Viking army. Using the latest forensic techniques, they piece together, for the first time, extraordinary stories of women warriors and a Viking warrior king reunited with his son in death. And in a world exclusive, they unearth new evidence of a massive military encampment, in what looks set to become one of the most significant Viking sites ever discovered in Britain.
