The Norman Conquest: Lesson 10 How did the Norman Conquest change Britain?

The final lesson in our Norman Conquest unit of work. Students begin by recapping the changes/ events that took place after the Battle of Hastings e.g. construction of castles. They are then introduced to Aldred who, fearing Norman rule, fled Britain, but only to return some 20 years later. Students examine the changes that took place in this time and decide which changes were most significant before writing a letter to Alrded explaining what has happened since his departure and what to expect upon his return.
