Normans changed so many aspects of life in England...tune in to find out more! This class will take a ‘zoomed out’ view of the overall changes and continuities in everyday life following the Norman Conquest, with a focus on land, laws, castles, and language. For each of these changes students will examine the impact on both the aristocracy and the peasantry, and explain the differences in how these classes were affected.
