Macmillan International Higher Education, May 24, 2013 - History - 240 pages
1066 is still one of the most memorable dates in British history. In this accessible text, Brian Golding explores the background to the Norman invasion, the process of colonisation, and the impact of the Normans on English society.

Thoroughly revised and updated in light of the latest scholarship, the Second Edition of this established text features entirely new sections on:

• the colonisation of towns
• women and the Conquest
• the impact of the Conquest on the peasantry.

Ideal for students, scholars and general readers alike, Conquest and Colonisation is an essential introduction to this pivotal period in British history.
