1066 Bits and Bobs with William the Conqueror

1066, the 27th of September. 

At last the wind has shifted, William the Conqueror's invasion force set sail for England.

1066, the 28th of September

William the Conqueror lands at Pevensey Bay this day in 1066.

As he sets foot on the beach he stumbles and falls, a collective gasp is heard, the Conqueror, knowing that his men believe this is a bad omen he shouts “See I already have England in my hands.”
