Just finished watching third season of The Last Kingdom , greatly enjoyed it. One thing i dont understand about the show, why Saxons were behaving and acting so native (as they if they were ancient inhabitants of England) when they themselves arrived to England just two or three centuries before the Viking invasions?. The nationalism sentiment by King Alfred to have united England makes little sense to me. Would not be Vikings fresh and natural competitors to them from mainland Europe from where they themselves had arrived two or three centuries ago?. More like Afghans and Mughals competing over India. I mean i watched a movie about King Arthur (events occurring three centuries before the timeline of The Last Kingdom) and in that movie Saxons are crude invaders like Vikings.
