KS3 War of the Roses Resources

In the 11th century, the Anglo-Saxons inhabited and governed England. The last Anglo-Saxon King of England, Edward the Confessor, failed to produce a male heir and when he died there was a succession crisis. With a number of claimants to the throne, the stage was set for the Duke of Normandy, William I who was later known as William the Conqueror, to invade. Life changed drastically for the people of England with changes occurring in the social hierarchy, governance, laws and language. Those who resisted were suppressed brutally, with the most famous suppression occurring in the north, known as the Harrying of the North.
