Why Celebrate King Canute?

Canute the Great (also Cnut and Knut) was crowned King of England in 1017. As a Viking king and ruler of Denmark, he protected England from the devasting Viking assaults that plagued the country for 100 years. He promoted himself as a peaceful English king, and made generous gifts to the Christian church.

The 20 years that followed his coronation were peaceful, and trade and art flourished, paving the way to the England we recognise today.
