The Legacy of Hastings
In many ways, the famous Battle of Hastings in 1066 was just the beginning of a lengthy series of battles for the Normans, who had many challenges awaiting them in the British Isles.

What followed were decades of warfare and diplomacy as these "Marcher Lords" sought to extend their domains by subjugating the stubbornly independent Welsh.
