A Book to Read and Love: The Norman Conquest: The Battle of Hastings and the Fall of Anglo-Saxon England - Marc Morris
A short summary of The Norman Conquest:
The facts and fatalities that wove together the Norman conquest of England.
My favorite William I quote:
"I have taken England with both my hands!"
(after he fell on his face, getting off his ship)
Questions to ponder while reading The Norman Conquest:
Did you realize how many people were trying to rule England?
Could the Bayeux Tapestry be accurate?
My thoughts about the book:
A pivot point in England's history.
