Bad Old Days,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The History Of Warfare: Norman Conquests - The Harrying Of The.. [DVD] (DVD)
This DVD helps reconstruct glimpses of the treatment of ordinary people in the North, after the Norman Conquest, as well as explaining the thinking behind William's dealings with the North. The Harrying of the North has been overlooked as a topic in medieval history. However, the reprisals which William made when he encountered resistance to his kingship from the North might justifiably be termed the "ethnic cleansing" of their day. Well worth a look.
