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. Further information on the Saxon Times, the resources available, thumbnail views and details of ‘how to buy’ individual sheets can be found at www.1066haroldsway.co.uk
