Join Dr. Jennifer Paxton, Professor, Catholic University, for her lecture "1066: How the Norman Conquest Changed Engand Forever." When William, Duke of Normandy, defeated the English at the Battle of Hastings in 1066, what really changed? In this lecture, historian Jennifer Paxton explores the fascinating ways in which the English church, English government, and English culture were transformed by the encounter with the Normans. She will also look at how Normandy itself changed as the result of being ruled from across the English Channel. Both England and Normandy were more vibrant and more connected to the European mainstream as a result of the Conquest. Sponsored by the Alexandria-Caen Sister City Committee.
