The Road to Hastings

The dramatic confrontation between Harold of England and William of Normandy at Senlac Ridge in 1066 was the result of almost a century of political and dynastic struggles. Paul Hill explores the prolonged death-throe of Anglo-Saxon England – a story of murder, treachery and ambition – and of a foreign predator with a talent for organisation.

“A very good and readable account of the slow death of Anglo-Saxon England…” Amazon reviewer
