You Really DON'T Want to Live in The Last Kingdom

June 25, 2020

The Last Kingdom on Netflix is now in its fourth season and remains a pretty popular offering. But the life of the people it depicts is, well, “nasty, brutish and short.” Clearly, a lot has changed in the 1,100-plus years between the setting of the show and today.

But in the thousand years before the action of the show, very little had changed. So what made the difference?
