The Scottish and Welsh Wars, 1250-1400, Paperback / softback Book

The Scottish and Welsh Wars, 1250-1400 Paperback / softback

Part of the Men-at-Arms series

Description

On 28 September 1066 William of Normandy landed near Hastings and prepared to meet the Anglo-Saxon army of King Harold Godwinson.

On 10 October 1066 the two armies met; and after six hours of fighting what became known as the Battle of Hastings, the Anglo-Saxon army was crushed and their king slain.

The Normans set up castles to control the native population, and four-fifths of all England's land changed ownership.

However, despite initial Norman success, it was fully two centuries before the Anglo-Norman kings managed to penetrate the wild interiors of Wales and Scotland, and many more centuries before the countries of Scotland, Wales and England were united under one crown.
