The Norman Way

on BBC Radio 4 FM

New series 1/3. David Aaronovitch explores what happens during a regime change - the change in question being the Norman Conquest in 1066. Conquering. Aaronovitch asks why the Normans came to England, whether the Anglo-Saxons were really unsophisticated and whether the Normans invented feudalism. And how much of what we think we know is due to Norman spin-doctors? Producer Rebecca Nicholson
