Artist's Description

“I desired to live worthily as long as I lived, and to leave after my life, to the men who should come after me, the memory of me in good works.”

- Epitaph on Alfred the Great’s grave, from his own translation of the Consolation of Philosophy by Boethius.

Alfred found learning dead
and he restored it.
Education neglected
and he revived it.
The laws powerless,
and he gave them force.
The Church debased,
and he raised it.
The land ravaged by a fearful enemy,
from which he delivered it.
Alfred’s name will live as long
as mankind shall respect the past.

- Inscription on the Statue to Alfred the Great in Wantage
