1066 is the date in British history that every schoolchild knows. The victory of William the Conqueror over King Harold at Hastings, and the subsequent imposition of Norman rule over the whole of England and Wales, effectively marked the creation of the country as we know it today. A surprising number of historical sites from this turbulent period survive: battlefields, castles, churches, monasteries.
Peter Bramley's illustrated field guide and companion to the Norman conquest gives full details of both the events and the personalities associated with each of these sites, together with the historical background and the reasons for the end of the Anglo-Saxon rule.
