From the Battle of Hastings to the Battle of Bosworth Field, Nicholas Vincent tells the story of how Britain was born. When William, Duke of Normandy, killed King Harold and seized the throne of England, the language, culture, politics and law were transformed. Over the next four centuries, a national identity developed out of the wars and rivalries with its neighbours. From these struggles emerged English law and an English Parliament, the English language, English humour and England's first overseas empires.
