The Fyrd gathers ...

Earldorman Rodor  has taken the men from the northern hundreds to deal with a viking raid. His wife Lady Hilda has been left in charge..... more viking ships have been seen in the estuary to the south-west of Wuduceastre ....

a couple of farmers spot that the local beacon is alight ....
 villagers are called to arms ....
 the men from the village and other local hamlets assemble on a nearby hill ....
they set off to join with the rest of the fyrd ...
the fyrd assembles at great oak .... men join with warriors from Wuduceastre led by Lady Hilda
 As the fyrd assembles Lady Hilda decides where to try and intercept the vikings ....
