Men of the North Winds


The BBC's been doing a season of documentaries on the Normans on BBC4. They're fascinating! I knew about 1066 and the Battle of Hastings, we all learnt that at school, but I had no idea that the Normans conquered a lot of southern Europe and fought their way into the Middle East as well. Did you know that Sicily was once ruled by the Normans?
