Norman Conquest & Medieval Period

Primary school resources to support the teaching of the Norman Conquest and the Medieval period

The Battle of Hastings in 1066 brought about many advancements. The Anglo-Saxons had ruled the land since the Roman times. Now, the Normans had taken over, which meant big changes

William was crowned King of England. The Normans transformed the country they had conquered – from how it was organised and governed to its language, laws and customs. Soon after the Conquest many castles were built across England, in order to secure the Normans’ hold on power.

Many of the items in the box are based on museum exhibits and will help give an insight into one of the most exciting, turbulent and changing eras in our history.
