G for Göta älv

My 2020 Blogging from A to Z Challenge revisits my best posts from the 2014 to 2019 Challenges.

G for Göta älv 1036 (2017)

Rewriting a new Kanata timeline threw up this turning point, which was a chance to solidify the dynastic ties around Northern Europe. Before the ‘our timeline’ revelation, will you recognise the real historical event or which crucial event in British history may never happen?

And all because I couldn’t stop constructing my Kanata alternative history. The initial trigger, Leif Eriksson’s permanent colonisation of Vinland, inspired me to rewrite other key episodes in history. I wanted the legacy forged from Vikings merging with the indigenous people to ripple down time. Kanata evolved into my vision of a 21st Century Viking Age.

Expect more alternative history ahead.

  1. Thanks for this snippet of Viking/Norwegian/English history, Some much still to learn. I recently watched a documentary on the Vikings from a Swedish island of the Baltic Sea, ( Orla?), a series of fortified settlements. The doc. Was on the massacre which occurred at one of the settlements, bodies left to rot, village to crumble, no signs of battle or theft. The site was left abandoned for 1500 years and deemed cursed until archeologists a few years ago started digging.
