1066 The Battle and Beyond

It's probably the most famous date in English history... We're travelling back to 1066! 

These are troubled times and there is danger afoot. A much-loved King is dead and a French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom. Not to mention all the other wannabe monarchs. 

Discover a changing England, shaped by shires, protected by castles and ruled by foreign knights. 

Use the famous Bayeux Tapestry to explore the significant events of 1066. What happened when, and how did William come to be called the conqueror?

Are you ready for the Norman invasion? Then don your armour and watch your back!
