1066 and All That History


Dr Matthew Bennett; Dr Katherine Weikert; Dr Ryan Lavelle

On Friday 16 September 2016 the Trowbridge Civic Centre hosted an event entitled ‘1066 and All that History Conference’ which marked the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. The all-day event featured talks from a wide range of experts on Anglo-Saxon and post-Conquest England. The participants included three members of the Winchester History Department: Dr Ryan Lavelle (Reader in Early Medieval History), Dr Katherine Weikert (Lecturer in Early Medieval European History) and Dr Matthew Bennett (Part-Time Hourly Lecturer in History.) All three were invited because of their expertise on various aspects of the Conquest and their talks reflected on their own specialisms: Ryan on the impact of the Anglo-Danish kingdom; Matthew on the three battles of 1066; and Katherine on the foreign queens of Norman kings. Lavelle, Weikert and Bennett were delighted to be invited to speak and enjoyed the experience.
