The Norman Conquest: A Very Short Introduction considers one of the most profound turning points in English history. The Norman Conquest in 1066 was the last time England was successfully invaded, cataclysmically transforming a disparate collection of small nations into a European state. But what actually happened? How was the invasion viewed by those who witnessed it? And how has its legacy been seen by generations since? This VSI reveals how dramatically English life was changed, from its language to its law, and focuses on the differing ways the conquest has been viewed by historians and in folklore ever since.
