In 1066 the English were conquered by the infamous invader, William the Conqueror. However this is not the whole story—the English did not roll over and die before their suppressors; far from it. Peter Rex brings to life the resistance, from those who allied themselves with the new regime to those who went “underground” to subvert it such as Hereward the Wake and Edric the Wild. He examines William’s pacification attempts, alongside his notorious “harrying” of the north.
Peter Rex is a retired history teacher. His next book, The Last Englishman: Hereward of the Fens, will be published by Tempus.About the Author :
