Christchurch Harbour. Readers of my book will know that I could not completely exclude Christchurch Harbour as the location of a significant sea battle between King Alfred's forces and the Vikings, as described in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicles (896 AD). Part of the reason was that the text refers to a "muða" ("ð" is pronounced "th), usually thought to be the mouth of a watercourse. However, it struck me that there is a River Mude that is called this to this day that runs into Christchurch Harbour (and the area is called Mudeford). I eventually thought that a location on the Isle of Wight was more likely, but I still cannot exclude Christchurch (and some other locations are also possible). For those interested, there is more about this in my book: King Alfred: A Man on the Move, available through bookshops and Amazon. http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/1916182003 #KingAlfred#alfredthegreat#saxons#anglosaxons#wessex#royal#medieval#earlymedieval#darkages#history#christchurch#dorset#harbour#christchurchharbour#mudeford#mudefordquay#rivermude#mude
