The Norman Conquest in 1066 was the last time England was successfully invaded, and was one of the most profound turning points in English history.

  • Explains how historians have pieced together the events of 1066, and the motives of the key figures involved
  • Explores how much of what we understand about the Norman Conquest was coloured by the interpretations and values of Victorian historians
