An illustrated guide to the Normans - the invaders of 1066 who
changed English life forever The 1066 Norman conquest of England,
led by William, Duke of Normandy ("the Conqueror"), was the single
greatest political change England has ever seen. The Normans
brought with them a new culture, which included law, architectural
style and methods, and leisure pursuits. The old aristocracy was
stripped of their assets and denounced, and in its place a new
French aristocracy began to run the country - even bringing their
language with them. The guide examines the impact the new Norman
rule had on the English way of life. Look out for more Pitkin
Guides on the very best of British history, heritage and travel.
