A Brief History of the Normans
The Conquests That Changed the Face of EuropePaperback - 2008
The history of the Normans began long before 1066 A.D. Originating from the Norsemen, they were one of the most successful warrior tribes of the Dark Ages dominating Europe from the Baltic Sea to the island of Sicily and the borders of Eastern Europe. As a military force they were unstoppable; as conquerors, they established their own kingdom in Normandy from where they set out on a number of devastating campaigns, as well as introduced innovations in politics, architecture and culture.
