Excellent review of one of--if not the--most important eras of English history.

I have heard the Conquest described as the reason England developed culturally as part of Western Europe rather than Northern Europe.

The author brackets the period in the text, providing the context both before and after the event. In addition, he cogently assesses the source materials and clearly identifies their various biases and/or shortcomings. It's quite an interesting read.
