The Last Anglo Saxon Kings: The Battle of Hastings


Were able to explain and retell the events of the Battle of Hastings by creating a structured account of this major historical event. Furthermore, we thought about the question of the legacy of this battle and the impact that this had on Britain. We wondered whether England would still be ruled by France/Normandy should the course of history been different.


Neve: "I wonder if this is why we have so many French words in our English language?"

We had great fun creating an information leaflet for a museum giving information about the Anglo-Saxon kings, explaining key aspects of their reign and devising our own question for a professional historian relating to legacy of the Anglo-Saxon kings.


Evie:"We thought about why Edward is known as 'The Confessor'."
