In newly conquered England, the years that followed the Battle of Hastings were marked by violent turmoil. King William responded to the uprising of the Anglo-Saxons by laying waste to the north of England. It was a period that saw the introduction of feudalism, a proliferation of Norman churches and castles, and the completion of the remarkable Doomsday Book. Featuring authentic reenactments, dramatizing contemporary accounts, and period imagery, this DVD gives an in-depth understanding of these dark times. Narrated by Hu Pryce, with expert analysis by Doctor Matthew Strickland of the University of Glasgow.
