Its just great that Wednesfields History is being celebrated in this way. Wolverhampton as a City should be readying itself to promote the original battle that the Mercians had with the Danish Vikings over a thousand years ago. many scholars and some lesser folk like me! Feel that this important battle took place on the Field of Woden. Wednesfield as it is known today. If the Mercians had lost the battle we would all have been speaking danish today!
