    WILLIAM I 'THE CONQUEROR' (r. 1066-1087)
    Born around 1028, William was the illegitimate son of Duke Robert I of Normandy, and Herleve (also known as Arlette), daughter of a tanner in Falaise. Known as 'William the Bastard' to his contemporaries, his illegitimacy shaped his career when he was young. On his father's death in 1035, William was recognised by his family as the heir - an exception to the general rule that illegitimacy barred succession. His great uncle looked after the Duchy during William's minority, and his overlord, King Henry I of France, knighted him at the age of 15. From 1047 onwards, William successfully dealt with rebellion inside Normandy involving his kinsmen and threats from neighbouring nobles, including attempted invasions by his former ally King Henry I of France in 1054 (the French forces were defeated at the Battle of Mortemer) and 1057. William's military successes and reputation helped him to negotiate his marriage to Mathilda, daughter of Count Baldwin V of Flanders. At the time of his invasion of England, William was a very experienced and ruthless military commander, ruler and administrator who had unified Normandy and inspired fear and respect outside his duchy. William's claim to the English throne was based on his assertion that, in 1051, Edward the Confessor had promised him the throne (he was a distant cousin) and that Harold II - having sworn in 1064 to uphold William's right to succeed to that throne - was therefore a usurper. Furthermore, William had the support of Emperor Henry IV and papal approval. William took seven months to prepare his invasion force, using some 600 transport ships to carry around 7,000 men (including 2,000-3,000 cavalry) across the Channel. On 28 September 1066, with a favourable wind, William landed unopposed at Pevensey and, within a few days, raised fortifications at Hastings. Having defeated an earlier invasion by the King of Norway at the Battle of Stamford Bridge near York in late September, Harold undertook a forced march south, covering 250 miles in some nine days to meet the new threat, gathering inexperienced reinforcements to replenish his exhausted veterans as he marched.

    Our calendar is compiled from press releases, e-mails and other sources, such as local history periodicals and personal contacts. Where we have extracted the information from a periodical, its title appears at the end of the entry in italics. It is, unfortunately, impossible to list all the local history related events we get to know about, simply because we do not have the time or resources. If you are interested in a particular place or county, then it's worth contacting the local society / county association direct, as they are very likely to publish their own diary of events and meetings etc. If you would like Local History Magazine to publicise a particular event or meeting, then please contact us and we will do our best to assist.

    and defeated the Saxons at the battle of hastings. used by the English at the battlesof Crecy revolutionary stages of development and/or regional differences.
    The first known use of armour was by the Egyptians (1500 B.C.) The armour was a cloth, shirtlike garment overlapped with bronze scales or plates sewn to it. The armour was very heavy, causing this style of protection to be short-lived. The Assyrians (900-600 B.C.) developed lamellar armour; small rectangular plates or lames were sewn to a garment in parallel rows. This style of armour was used into the 16th c. A.D. The Assyrians also used bronze helmets, shields and arms. In 8th c. B.C., Greek technology refined armour by fashioning bronze plates to fit over distinct parts of the body, i.e., following the musculature of the body part it was protecting. Their armour was the bronze breastplate and backplate, termed the cuirass, greaves, which protected the shins, and brass helmets. The Greeks used a massive shield called an argive which covered the body from chin to knee. Rome was founded in 753 B.C., but 500 years of warfare were needed for Rome to gain dominance of the Italian peninsula. The Romans borrowed heavily from the Greeks using their version of the argive (scutum), greaves, helmets and cuirass. By the 3rd c. B.C., Romans developed a cuirass of linen covered with bronze lames and a shirt of interlocking metal rings called mail. It is believed mail was a Celtic invention. (Celts were ancient people of western and central Europe including Britons and Gauls.) Mail, or chainmail, was made by winding wire tightly around an iron rod, cutting the wire into rings, and interlocking the rings together by soldering or riveting each individual ring closed. A mail shirt weighed between 14 to 30 pounds.

    York's multi-tiered history kicks off with the Celtic Brigante tribe, whose presence led to the arrival of the ninth Roman Legion in AD 71. The Romans erected a walled garrison called Eboracum at the strategically important confluence of the Ouse and Foss Rivers. The fort steadily increased in importance, becoming the Romans' British campaign headquarters and attracting visits by big-name emperors such as Hadrian, Septimius Severus (who died there) and Constantine. It's thought that Constantine was proclaimed emperor on the future site of York Minster - spooky, because he went on to become the first Christian emperor. Squabbles and disorder ensued when the Romans pulled out of Britain in 410, but ultimately the Saxons prevailed. A city called Eoforwic was built atop the Roman ruins, eventually becoming the capital of the independent kingdom of Northumbria. In 627 the Northumbrian king was baptised in the city's first church by the man who'd brought Christianity to the northeast in 625, bishop Paulinus. The wooden church became the first minster, and Paulinus the first Archbishop of York. The city changed hands once again in 867, when it was destroyed by rampaging Vikings and rebuilt as Jorvik, the capital of the Danelaw - everything north and east of a line drawn between Chester and London. It flourished under the usurpers, becoming an important trading port thanks to the formerly tidal River Ouse. A fresh wave of invading Norsemen was vanquished in 1066 at Stamford Bridge, east of York, but only days later the tables were emphatically turned at the Battle of Hastings. William the Conqueror dealt with Northumbria's rebellious spirit in no uncertain terms, setting fire to York and destroying the countryside in a campaign of terror dubbed 'the harrying of the North'. The city rose from the ashes once again, strengthened with new city walls, castles and a cathedral, and prospering as a centre of the new trade in wool.

If true, mankind must view Normandy as one very large bakery. So many world-altering moments have taken place in Normandy that creating history could almost be viewed as an industry here. All of which makes it such a fascinating region for our bike tours. In Rouen, along the River Seine, the Place du Vieux-Marche designates where Joan of Arc was burned at the stake. Just north of Caen, lie the beaches of Normandy where the allied invasion poured forth durin g World War II. William the Conqueror also used these shores to set off for the Battle of Hastings. Artistic history is deep too. Mont-St-Michel towers upon an island of rock and enjoys superstar status as one of the greatest architectural achievements in all of Europe. The port village of Honfleur gave birth to Impressionism, and just outside of Giverny is where Monet derived inspiration for painting water lilies. Fortunately some of Normandy's residents realized that its combination of farmlands and coastline is not only good for making history but for making food too. Which, from our standpoint, is a great thing. Lobster, oysters, Camembert cheese, and Calvados brandy are just a few of its regional specialties that can turn a meal-dare we say-into being historic.

    On Military History and Criteria for Most Important Battles: Bigger is not Always Badder How do we gauge the relative significance of a given military encounter in the annals of world history? We naturally tend to focus on the loudest, heaviest clashes that shout their intensity in the most overt tones—the Stalingrads and Verduns, those massive set-piece conflagrations that pit enormous standing armies in each other’s firing lines. We also tend to zero in on “decisive” battles that were crucial in determining the outcome of a war. A decisive battle can also be one that permanently and fundamentally alters the state of affairs for the war’s aftermath; the Fall of France to the Germans in 1940 and Britain’s catastrophic defeat against the Japanese in Singapore in 1942 both had momentous impacts over and above the war’s immediate causes themselves, since they undercut the physical and psychological bases for the British and French empires and undercut these countries’ capacities to suppress independence movements, causing their colonial realms to crumble. Certain nations, naturally, will tend to have certain wars and particular battles lodged especially high up in the collective consciousness.
