I'm working on editing recordings of section 5 and 6 currently, and just noticed that the title in the MW is incorrect -- it's Alfred the Great, not Albert.

Alfred aside: In my world history 101 college class, I learned about Alfred for the first time, and for whatever reason, as the professor introduced Alfred's big comeback against the Danes, he said in a sort of sing-songy way, "Sooooo from out of the swamps Alfred came..." and I've never not thought of this since, when I hear Alfred mentioned! ("Soooo from out of the swamps, Alfred came,") has been been rolling around my brain on repeat since I started working on these sections!

OMG I am such a dork! Thank you for catching that for me. If I remember correctly, at that time, I was looking at something for Albert the Great. So, of course, my brain made Alfred into Albert and went along its merry way! :roll: Thank you!

Can I take section 26? If but only for selfish reasons to hasten volume 6. :D

I know what you mean about hastening volume 6! This one has taken longer than the others, but will get them done! Section 26 is yours, thank you!
