The information was very helpful as I am going to Normandy this summer and it gives me foundation for all of the knowledge I will learn.
The amount of history and detail that was reduced to the most concise account of William's extraordinary life was quite amazing. I have been privileged to view several lectures by Mr Wilson and this was the most complicated yet. Luckily I know a fair amount about this time period in English history so I was able to track and understand most of it William was a complicated man in a complicated moment of history. He had extraordinary gifts and very human limitations. Mr Wilson made him come alive for us as a warrior king, a shrewd politician, a faithful husband, a military strategist, and a great administrator who gave us the Doomsday books!
Very interesting and enjoyed the discussion of William's ascension to king as well as how his connections work their way into history.
Very well presented and interesting. Liked the constant reference to the Bayeux Tapestry.
