French text: On October 14, 1066, on the hill of Caldbec, the armies of William the Conqueror and Harold Godwinson, clash in a bloody battle we will later Hastings. The victory in Normandy continues to be regarded as the central pivot of the common destiny between the Kingdom of England and the Duchy of Normandy, it is also around this axis that the future of England plays out, as the Normans have influenced Saxon society. Overall, the course of the battle is relatively well-known, thanks to many medieval authors medieval or simply through the research which revolves around this theme. However, the before and the after battle remain topics quite poorly known. Indeed, we can easily trace back the origin of the conflict to the beginning of the Eleventh century, when a certain Knut the Great, who is none other than the King of Norway and Denmark, becomes King of England and wife Emma of Normandy. Similarly, before the battle, an impressive political game between the three pretenders to the throne, Harald III of Norway, Harold Godwinson and William the Conqueror, is going to play out for the conquest of England. From Stamford Bridge in the pacification of the North, via Hastings and London, this book will allow you to discover this central battle of the year one thousand. You will be able to understand the political and strategic stakes in the conquest, but also discover uniforms of the Norman and Saxon soldiers thanks to the numerous photos of reconstruction and to the illuminations of the Eleventh century.
