Synopsis

‘I loved it. A suitably epic account of one of the most seismic and far-reaching events in British history’ Dan SnowAn upstart French duke who sets out to conquer the most powerful and unified kingdom in Christendom. An invasion force on a scale not seen since the days of the Romans. One of the bloodiest and most decisive battles ever fought.Going beyond the familiar outline, bestselling historian Marc Morris examines not only the tumultuous events that led up to the Battle of Hastings in 1066, but also the chaos that came in its wake – English rebellions, Viking invasions, the construction of hundreds of castles and the destruction of England’s ancient ruling class. Language, law, architecture, even attitudes towards life itself, were altered forever by the Norman Conquest.‘Retells the story of the Norman invasion with vim, vigour and narrative urgency’ Dan Jones, Sunday Times‘A wonderful book’ Terry Jones‘A much-needed, modern account of the Normans in England’ The Times
