The Norman Conquest

Audio from Marc Morris’ talk at the Chalke Valley Festival on Monday, 23rd June 2014.

Acclaimed historian and broadcaster Dr Marc Morris brings to life the momentous events of 1066 and the Norman conquest. How was England, at once so powerful and yet so vulnerable, totally dominated by the Norman invasion? Buildings ripped down and rebuilt, an ancient ruling class swept clean away, even attitudes towards life itself were altered forever by the coming of the Normans.
