Key Stage 4 | Subject: History | Topics: Normans | Session Type: Depth study
Once you’ve conquered what happens next? Charting the arrival and influence of the Normans in England, this session focuses on William the Conqueror's mighty fortress: the White Tower.
Students will examine both physical and documentary primary evidence to consider the roles and importance of the White Tower in Norman England. Through the exploration of themes of conquest, control, society and the Church, students will debate what the structures the Normans left behind can tell us about the people who built them.
