New This Month: More Norman Conquest

By June 15, 2012

Follow me on:

This month we continue to look at the events in 1066 which ended with the Norman Conquest. We look at Edward the Confessor, the king whose death began the war, and two royal brothers, Harold Godwineson (who succeeded Edward and was killed during the conquest) and Tostig. We've coverage of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, as well as the Consequences of the Conquest, The Harrying of the North, and the pictorial retelling of the conquest, the Bayeux Tapestry.
