ENGLISH COLLUSION AND THE NORMAN CONQUEST

£4.99

It is often said that history is written by the victors but in the case of William 1 much of what has survived was composed by those upon whom he imposed extra taxes (to pay for the defence of the realm) and so they tended to give him “a bad press” upon which later “story writers” have constructed the fictional “Normans oppressing the Saxons”. This book shows that William 1 followed English law & tradition so acted as a good King effectively setting up the basis for the nation state and the rest of English progress.
