William had taken a lot of time to be ready to invade England. He had built many weapons for his soldiers. Many of the Norman soldiers were on horseback. They wore a lot of armour and used lances to attack the Saxon soldiers from a distance. Most of Harold’s soldiers fought on foot.

These were just some of the reasons why William won in 1066. The worksheet explores other reasons and includes challenging tasks for your pupils.
