Anglo-Saxons and Normans

In this series of videos, produced by Royal Holloway, University of London, students and staff explore Anglo-Saxon and Norman England, exploring the Anglo-Saxon Witan and Moots, how law and order was maintained and the Norman conquest, including a multi-chronicler account of the Battle of Hastings. Other videos examine how William and his rule was characterised by the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle; how the conquest was made permanent, including videos looking specifically at castle-building and church reforms; and resistance to Norman rule. Note: click the icon in the top right corner to see the complete playlist.
