In The Woman who Crushed the Vikings (June), we quoted Al­cuin’s de­scrip­tion of a Vik­ing at­tack, with the im­pli­ca­tion that it was writ­ten at the time of the Great Vik­ing Army. Al­cuin was ac­tu­ally de­scrib­ing the sack of Lind­is­farne in 793, sev­eral decades ear­lier. Thanks to reader Dave Haldenby for spot­ting this er­ror.
