The English Resistance: The Underground War Against the Normans

Front Cover
Tempus, 2006 - History - 237 pages
In 1066 the English were conquered by the infamous invader, William the Conqueror. However, this is not the whole story. The English did not roll over and die before their suppressors—far from it. Peter Rex brings to life the resistance, from those who allied themselves with the new regime to those who went “underground” to subvert it such as Hereward the Wake and Edric the Wild. Rex examines William’s pacification attempts, alongside his notorious “harrying” of the north.
