Battle Story: Hastings 1066
Books From Sharon
In 1066 the most significant battle on English soil took place some 6 miles north-west of Hastings. A king would die on the battlefield and a new dynasty would be established.
Photographs of the battlefield today, artist’s interpretations and reproductions from the Bayeux tapestry place you in the centre of the action.
Easy to read maps plot each development in the struggle.
Descriptions of weaponry, armour and tactics of the combatants help explain why the famous housecarles of England were obliterated for all time.
Packed with fact boxes, this short introduction is the perfect way to explore a turning point in British and European history.
