This episode covers the reign of Edward the Confessor including his problematic nobility and close links with Normandy. The main event is of course 1066 and the Norman Conquest, including the attempt by Harold Hardrada and the Norwegians who were defeated at the Battle of Stamford Bridge. The rest of the episode is devoted to William’s reign and the massive changes which occurred afterwards.

Recommended Books:

Ten Minute English and British History is a series of short, ten minute animated narrative documentaries that are designed as revision refreshers or simple introductions to a topic. Please note that these are not meant to be comprehensive and there's a lot of stuff I couldn't fit into the episodes that I would have liked to. Thank you for watching, though, it's always appreciated.
