1066 The Saxon Times - The Battle of Hastings - Set of 8 Posters

History KS2 and KS3 The Saxon Times is a look at how the events of 1066 may have been reported by an English newspaper - with a little interference from the Normans. It is a uniquely English view of what happened in that momentous year and a very different look at the tumultuous events of the year 1066 that includes the Norman Conquest of England. The Saxon Times takes the form of a series of pages from a contemporary newspaper, reporting on events as they unfolded and appeared to contemporary people, and a selection of excerpts from the book are now available as a class resource from the author, David Clarke. The Saxon Times aims: • to inspire curiosity to know more about the past • to increase knowledge and understanding about 1066 • to understand how people’s lives have shaped the nation The Saxon Times will: • identify the significant events of 1066 • help develop perspective and argument • help weigh the available evidence • includes topical advertisements and by lines, such as ‘Ask Brother Ealdred’ and ‘The Food Section’, that provide humour, insight and help promote interest in life at the time. • Help understand the complexity of people’s lives and the relationships between different groups The Saxon Times provides a complete account of the year 1066 and full background to these resources.
