How did it feel to be a Norman soldier at the Battle of Hastings? What was it like to attack the Saxon shield wall and face King Harold’s hand picked body guard of Housecarls?

Discover how the Normans won the nine-hour battle, changing the history of England for ever.

See the Normans’ weapons, swords and helmets and follow the path of William as he came up to London using the Roman road Stane Street after the Battle. He may have watered his horse at the spring at Ewell!
