The Saxon Times reviews the events of 1066 through the eyes of The Saxon Times reporters and has been much commended for its unique view of life in 1066 and the events that changed England forever.
The Saxon Times is written to inform and entertain all ages with its unique blend of historic fact, humour, The Food Section (with menus for the food at the time of the Conquest), advertisements for imagination, eye witness descriptions of all the major events and the battles of 1066 and concludes with Duke William’s march on London and his Coronation.
