Ask me about 1066.

So here’s the plan. I’d like between 10 and 20 questions to answer about 1066, so I can answer them in a video to help commemorate the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. So if there’s anything you’ve ever wanted to know, or just always wanted to see something talked about fire a Q or 2 at me, and I’ll research the best and most interesting ones, and give the answers in the video. Ask here, YouTube or over social media and hopefully in a short time we will have put something fun together to celebrate this landmark event.

Hope you join in.

  1. How did William get Papal approval for the invasion, and what effect did this have.

  2. how many men did Harold have at Stamford bridge and susequently at Hastings? – were his numbers considerably weakened by the first battle or was he able to pick up new soldiers on the way to Hastings?

  3. I know this question is speculative – but – if Harold had lost the battle of Stamford Bridge – what might be the likely result – eg – would war have then arisen between William and Norwegian forces. Sorry its a bit random and purely academic – but I wonder who would have been better Norwegian conquest or French.
