1066 in Perspective is a landmark publication offering an interdisciplinary assessment of the impact of the Norman Conquest in the 950 years since 1066. Drawing upon papers presented at the Tower of London on the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings, contributors, all of whom are internationally renowned, examine 1066 from a wide range of perspectives: military, social, political, architectural, ecclesiastical, gender and art history.
David Bates is Professorial Fellow at the University of East Anglia, and a world-leading expert on Norman and Anglo-Norman history. He has held positions at several universities in Britain and France, and his many books include Normandy before 1066, The Normans and Empire, and, most recently, a biography of William the Conqueror in the Yale English Monarchs series.
