The Norman Invasion of 1066

The Norman Invasion of 1066

One of our History School Trips

The year 1066 is regarded as a watershed in English history as it is generally regarded as the start of the medieval period. It represents the transition of an England divided by small semi-independent kingdoms, often bickering amongst themselves, to one unified by central control through the introduction of feudalism and a program of nationwide castle building. And of course the catalyst for this change was the Battle of Hastings.
