This event has now passed, find out what else is going on at Athelstan Museum

Athelstan has risen from the ranks of relatively little-known royals to be counted today among the most important kings in English history. Many of his remarkable achievements set a new course for England and the English, but none looms larger upon the historical record than his victory over an alliance of Scots, Britons, and Vikings at the battle of Brunanburh in 937.

Professor Michael Livingston is a historian, author of multiple academic works, including Never Greater Slaughter: Brunanburh and the Birth of England (Osprey, 2021), and co-star of Discovery Channel show “Contact”.

He is a full professor at The Citadel, the Military College of South Carolina, and at present serves as the Secretary-General for the United States Commission on Military History.
