In this scene, King Egbert of Wessex sent his son Athelwulf on a rescue mission in order to save Princess Kwentrith of Mercia who is being locked up and kept prisoner in a Tower somewhere in Merica.
This battle scene is very impressive, how the men came to immediate attention when the attack happened.
Both sides exhibited equal determination while
What I don't get There were men on top of the Tower throwing Rocks down at Athelwulf?... Then why didn't they go down to assist when he made it into the Princess Kwentrith's cell?
