Very interesting Ard Ri.
To see original source material of Anglo Saxon kingdoms up close, the current exhibition at the British Library is excellent:

It looks like they’ve concluded that some of the bones in the chests were those of Queen Emma, consort of both King Ethelred the unready and King Canute. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencet...iscovered.html

A dynastic connection between Flanders and England had been established in the ninth century. Judith, the daughter of Charles the Bald, became England's first consecrated queen in 856 on her marriage to Aethelwulf, King of the West Saxons.

There was an excellent three part series on Alfred & the Anglo Saxons with Michael Wood some years back. I remember the episode on his daughter. A remarkable figure.

Certainly not much left. As you say very sad. At least Gloucester Abbey church survived to become a new cathedral.
