Jack gets to interview Alfred the Great

Me: Do you think you deserve the name “Alfred the Great”?

Alfred: I don’t know if I deserve it because all I did was uphold the honour of my kingdom.

Me: That’s very modest of you. How long did it take you to design the burhs?

Alfred: Well I’m not quite sure how long it took. You lose track of time when you’ve been dead 1013 years.

Me: Poor you. How did you feel after the Battle of Eddington?

Alfred: I felt exhilarated.

Me: Is the story about the cakes true?

Alfred: Well I don’t know. I forgot well I was dead.

Me: Thank you very much Alfred you can go back to your coffin now

Alfred: Thank you very much.
