Normans of the South

Last night’s episode of the excellent series was magnificent. A great story well presented, with many quotes from Anna Comnena, and images of amazing art and conquest. As Prof Bartlett said: ‘Once beaten the Normans just disappeared; they assimilated but left behind a landscape littered with magnificent cathedrals and castles.’

Watch it on BBC iPlayer and catch up with the previous episodes. These are time limited so don’t delay. Click the image to visit BBC iPlayer.
