Book Description

10 Oct 2010 Shire Living Histories
1066 is perhaps the most important date in English history. The Norman invasion, headed by William the Conqueror, meant revolutionary change throughout English life. Soon there was a new ruling class, new language, new styles of dress, behaviour and architecture, as well as a new capital and new forms of landholding. The elite Normans themselves brought England much closer to Continental Europe, lived in their new castles and brought in novel styles of military training, founded monasteries and set up schools. This volume explores their lifestyle and the ways in which they interacted with the Anglo-Saxon English as they changed the face of the country forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Living Like a Norman 10 Mar 2012
By John HistoryGuy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Norman England: 1066-1204 by Trevor Rowley is another example of the Shire Living Histories series that proves that good things can come in small packages. In only 80 pages, the book is filled with facts, images and maps about this fascinating period just following the Norman Conquest to the reign of King John. A perfect book for a young person to learn about the daily lives and deeds of the common folk who called England home at that time. As a guide, it includes maps, suggested readings, and a list of places to visit. Overall, a great place to start for anyone wanting to learn about early England and what life was like for the inhabitants.

By transponder - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a thicker book than most in this Shire series, and it's beautifully done: interesting, well written, and engagingly illustrated, with photos as well as paintings. Recommended for anyone with an interest in the period.
