Anglo-Saxon England emerged from the Viking age as one of the wealthiest and best organised kingdoms in Christendom, with a powerful army and system of government, a wealthy and sophisticated church, and a flourishing artistic tradition. In 1066, however, the country suffered shattering defeat when William the Conqueror crossed the Channel and defeated King Harold at the Battle of Hastings. In the centuries that followed, English politics remained turbulent, and English kings clashed repeatedly with restless nobles, ambitious archbishops, and even their own children, all while struggling to maintain their position in the face of the rising power of the Kingdom of France. In this short guide, Daniel Gerrard tells the story of England’s transformation from Anglo-Saxon to Norman rule, and looks at the momentous consequences of the Norman Conquest.
