    I am looking for some recommendations for board games that might be suitable as campaign engines for miniatures campaigns, to cover the following periods:

    The conflicts between the Anglo-Saxon and British Nations from C7 onwards

    The Saxon -Viking conflict

    The Norman invasion

    Diex Aie might fit your interests, it contains both a man to man skirmish hex and counter wargame and a matching strategy game set directly following the Norman Invasion. You might drop the skirmish and replace it with a rule set of your choice.

    1066 Year of the Comet, a more grand strategic treatment.

    Info on both can be seen on BGG of course!

    Britannia covers most of that period. I have been meaning to adapt it as a campaign engine for years, but lacked the players to make the effort worthwhile.

    Never argue with an idiot. They'll only drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    Risk the battle for medieval England – English Heritage special addition is a good medieval board game.

    Tally-Ho!

    Perhaps 878 Vikings?

    Check out the Society of Ancients games.  From memory there are a couple there that might suit.  You don’t have to be a member to purchase and they are reasonably priced.
