|Vikings rush on through marshy ground|
|British form shield wall a wait|
|Eadwulf and Athelgard form up on the hill|
|Levy take the full force of Viking charge|
|Push of shields on the hill|
|Shield wall against aggression in the balance|
Eventually it looked as though the British were getting the upper hand, loses were great but they had pushed the Vikings back down the hill, the danger was they had been forced to break out of their defensive shield wall to pursue them.
|Vikings pushed back ....but wait|
The Vikings came back up the hill and with terrible losses the British started to break, Eadwulf made a hasty break for safety, but exhausted from the battle he just wasn't quick enough to get away and Ivar the Coward true to form chased him down an axe blow to back saw Eadwulf the Good hacked down. Although his two nobles eventually survived the battle it had been a grievous blow to the British and a new Lord would need to be found to unite the tribes and raise any siege the Vikings undertook. A very close battle which could have gone either way but suddenly slipped into a major win for the Vikings.
