1600 years ago the English tribes (Angles, Jutes, Frisians, Franks and Saxons) appeared on the coasts of Britain. They had invaded from Denmark, the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. And with them they brought the English language, sagas of Germanic heroes, Gods of fertility and Gods of war. The Anglo-Saxons were led by two brothers, Hengest and Horsa, the forefathers of the English nation.In the early 5th century Roman rule came to an end in Britain and soon new leaders emerged and civil war broke out. And almost immediately the sea began to disappear under the shadows of the Viking ships. The English had arrived. This is an epic adventure of war, honour, love, friendship, betrayal and blood-feuds. A band of Anglo-Saxon warlords are bound by oaths to each other and share a common fate as their destiny is to write a new name onto the lands of Britannia with the blood of their enemies. That name is England!
