Experience the Norman Conquest and all the events of 1066 through the pages of a contemporary English Newspaper ‘The Saxon Times’ as seen through the eyes of The Saxon Times reporters.

When King Edward the Confessor died in January 1066 nobody could have foreseen the year of bloodshed that would take place.

Under the leadership of Harold Godwinson, Dux Angolurum, England was at peace but Edward’s death and King Harold’s coronation set the country into a tumultuous spiral of battles and invasions, treachery and duplicity that ultimately the cost King Harold the throne of England.

A Dodgy Dover Sole

th green

It is All-Hallow’s Eve

And the darker days have come.

There is chaos in Dover

As the town is overcome.

The soldiers loot and pillage

But the Duke is feeling green,

It may be a touch of dysentery

From some unclean Norman cuisine.

Or was it the people of Dover

Who cooked him a meal in a bowl,

A Halloween token for Willy –

Of a Dodgy Dover Sole!
