Hey guys ,
So Studies have been the bane of my existence and I needed a break , I have no idea how but by luck I came across this new BBC America series called “The Last Kingdom” and it was the best thing that happened I can vouch that !
Me being an absolute History Lover would recommend this to others who feel the same. However is it not just history but a whole lot of action ; thrilling battle scenes , beautiful romances a bit of fantasy all wrapped in one.
Let me tell you a bit about it ,
Basically the series is an an eight-part adaptation of Bernard Cowell’s historical novels series The Saxon Stories. Its Set in the late ninth century when England was not united but was several separate kingdoms . The Anglo-Saxon land was invaded by “Danes” and these Danes happened to coincidentally be hunky , tall with long hair not to mention the Danish accent ofcourse ❤ *sighs*
The hero of the series Uhtred, orphaned son of a Saxon nobleman, is captured by Viking Danes and reared as one of them. Forced to choose between a kingdom that shares his ancestry and the people of his upbringing, his loyalties are constantly tested
Captivated throughout the whole series ; Infact could not sleep until I had watched all 8 episodes ! The scenery is to die for and some of it has been shot in Wales ❤ Do watch and share you’re comments ❤
I assure you its worth it , and within the first 30 minutes you all will be swooning over Alexander Dreymon our very own Uhtred !
