“A sea-folk blinder than the sea
Broke all about his land,
But Alfred up against them bare
And gripped the ground and grasped the air,
Staggered, and strove to stand.
He bent them back with spear and spade,
With desperate dyke and wall,
With foemen leaning on his shield
And roaring on him when he reeled;
And no help came at all.” ~ G.K. Chesterton
Help may not have come to King Alfred, but it came to the #FellCompany! We have emerged from an amazing week of adventures with many more stories to tell! Our Rangers and Sword-Thanes are returning home to heal their wounds and sharpen their swords for next time!
