Key Specials Hastings 1066 - The Battle and Invasion that Changed History
The Battle of Hastings and the subsequent Norman Conquest was arguably the most significant event not just in English history, but that of the world. The unified nation that eventually emerged from the Conquest grew in strength and self-belief as it too conquered other territories and peoples, ultimately creating the largest empire ever seen. This 100-page special examines why the Normans invaded in 1066, how they defeated the Saxons at Hastings and then completed their Conquest of the country. This fascinating story is brought to life in a rich assortment of unique illustrations.
