Lord Uhtred leads the offensive attack as the Danes wait patiently. King Ælla and the English forces rush downhill but their blows are rendered useless by the ever-effective Danish shield wall. King Osbert and the rest of the forces rush in to assist. Suddenly, the second half of the Danish army comes out of hiding to close in on the English from behind, trapping them between two shield walls. King Ælla, Lord Uhtred and most of the English are slaughtered. ("Episode 1.1")
