The Last Kingdom TV tie-ins

Later on in the autumn the BBC will be broadcasting an historical drama called The Last Kingdom. This is based on the Saxon series of books by Bernard Cornwell and it looks like they have adapted the first two books in the series, namely The Last Kingdom and The Pale Horseman.

Now tie-in covers have been revealed for the two books and they will be out in paperback on 8 October 2015.

The books are set in the ninth century and deal with King Alfred’s attempts to unite the various English kingdoms against the Danes.

I’m assuming the series will have its UK broadcast later in October.
