Osprey Landmarks in History : The Norman Conquest

This beautifully-illustrated book gives a unique visual and narrative insight into the events of 1066, the people whose lives it affected, and the legendary way in which the Conquest was recorded in cloth. Conquest expert Christopher Gravett unlocks the mysterious controversies within the tapestry and tells a stunning tale of life for Normans and Saxons, both before and after the events of October 1066. The changes that the Conquest wrought on the landscape, the government and the church of Anglo-Saxon England are all examined, along with the smaller changes to everyday life that had greatest impact on the people who lived through the times. The historical reconstruction artist Ivan Lapper adds to this tale with stunning scenes of life in Norman times, meticulously researched and beautifully depicted. Using up-to-the-minute research, Ivan Lapper creates detailed scenes of everyday life and events that make the narrative come to life.
