What did Tostig do in 1066?

Jan 24


Tostig, King Harold’s brother, was given everything from the plum orchards of Plumstede to Earl of Northumbria but he always wanted more and eventually he turned upon his brother to disastrous effect and split the Godwin family apart.

You can identify and examine the important role that Tostig played in the events of 1066 through the pages of The Saxon Times.

If Tostig’s animosity to his brother could have been diffused would the outcome of 1066 have changed?
