Historian and broadcaster Marc Morris throws new light on 1066 and the Norman conquest of England. The story of how William the Conqueror defeated Harold at the Battle of Hastings is just one part of an epic tale told by Morris. He goes back a generation to explain how the less sophisticated Normans were able to defeat the all-powerful and united English. He follows William to the end of his career to show how his hopes of a united Anglo-Norman realm were dashed on the back of English rebellions, Viking invasions and the demands of his fellow conquerors. And he demonstrates how life in England was forever changed by the coming of the Normans.

Morris studied and taught history at the universities of London and Oxford. He presented the highly acclaimed television series Castle and is also author of the accompanying book and of A Great and Terrible King.
