Our next exhibition from 16th June will be ‘The Saxon Times’.
‘The newspaper is a look at how the events of 1066 may have been reported and records eye witness reports of the events surrounding the death of Edward the Confessor, the coronation of King Harold II, the events that led to the Battle of Hastings, 14th October 1066 and the subsequent conquest of England through the eyes of The Saxon Times reporters’.
The book is due to be published in August 2016 and promises a fascinating view into this most important period of the nation’s history. This is the work of David Clarke, who some of you will have heard talk on ‘Harold’s Way’ last year. David has also produced a series of walk booklets in and around Hastings and St Leonards which are stocked at the History House. We are grateful to David for the loan of the exhibition.
