The module explores the Norman Conquest of 1066, the Battle of Hastings, and the imposition of Norman power on Saxon England, focusing on castle building and the 'Harrying of the North'. It shows how the Norman kings consolidated their powerbase through control of the land, and how the Domesday Book was an instrument of this oppression.
