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.

An accessible, solid overview of the Norman's and their contribution to medieval society.

You can breeze through this pretty easily, and it covers the gamut from early Viking settlements to William the Conquerer to the conquest of Sicily.

It's mostly political history, though I would have liked a little bit more cultural and social history added in.
