KS3 Normans Resources

The Normans were a group of people from Normandy, northern France, who had lived there since prehistoric times and into the Viking era. The duchy of Normandy emerged around 900 A.D. In 1066, it belonged to the Duke of Normandy known as William the Conqueror. He invaded England after Edward the Confessor died without any heirs. William believed himself to be a rightful claimant to the throne but King Harold II had himself crowned king instead. Harold’s Saxon army and William went head to head in the Battle of Hastings on October 14 1066. With Harold killed in the battle, William was able to secure his right as king and was crowned on December 25 1066. He implemented many changes in England and resistance was met with a heavy hand – the most notable being the Harrying of the North.
