Viking Invasion of Dorset
We recently has a visit from Mike Loades and a film crew for a Granada TV programme on the Viking invasion of Chester. The Vikings of Middle England were involved and filming was done at Oakfield Farm, Dewlands Common, and the Ancient Technology Centre at Cranborne.
We took lots of photos and here are a few
