The Battle of Hastings

by: Stephen Morillo
The Battle of Hastings is a unique collection of materials focused on one of the most significant battles in European history. It includes all the primary sources for the battle, including pictorial, and seminal accounts of the battle by the major historians of the last two centuries. Stephen Morillo, in his own important piece, first sets the scene, describing the political situation in western Europe in the mid-eleventh century, and the events of 1066. He then introduces the sources, reviewing the perspective of their medieval authors, and traces the history of writing about the battle.

Wulf the Saxon: A Story of the Norman Conquest

by: G. A. Henty
Wulf the Saxon: A Story of the Norman Conquest, by G.A. Henty, tells the story of a young Saxon thane and his faithful follower, Osgod, in their allegience to Harold Godwinson, future King of England. Before their adventure, the previous king, King Edward the Confessor, foolishly promised his throne - the throne of all England - to William the Norman. The throne, however, was not His to give, for only the people of England were to choose their ruler. Thus, when Edward died, the people choose a very qualified Harold Godwinson.

The Battle of Hastings 1066

by: M. K. Lawson
1066 remains the most evocative date in English history, when Harold was defeated by William the Conqueror and England changed overnight from Saxon to Norman rule. It has long been believed that, according to the Bayeux Tapestry, Harold was shot in the eye by an arrow. M. K. Lawson argues that the tapestry was badly restored in the 19th century, and that we should not necessarily believe what we see. He goes to sources that depict the tapestry before that restoration and reveals some breathtaking insights which will revolutionize the way we view both the battle and the death of England’s last Saxon king.

The Normans: From Raiders to Kings

by: Lars Brownworth
There is much more to the Norman story than the Battle of Hastings. These descendants of the Vikings who settled in France, England, and Italy-but were not strictly French, English, or Italian-played a large role in creating the modern world. They were the success story of the Middle Ages: a footloose band of individual adventurers who transformed the face of medieval Europe. During the course of two centuries, they launched a series of extraordinary conquests, carving out kingdoms from the North Sea to the North African coast.
