Conquest

Stewart Binns

1066 - Senlac Ridge, England. William the Bastard, Duke of Normandy defeats Harold Godwinson, King Harold II of England - in what will become known as the Battle of Hastings.
The battle is hard fought and bloody, the victor emerging only as the October light fades and the lives of thousands have been spent on the field, including that of King Harold. But, despite the onslaught of brutality that the newly crowned William unleashed on the nation, England was not conquered on that day. The Anglo Saxon tribes, proud in their ancient traditions, would never submit meekly to Norman rule.
There was one man who united the resistance - whose heroic deeds were nearly lost to legend. His name was Hereward of Bourne, the champion of the English. His honour, bravery and skill at arms would change the future of European history. His is the legacy of the noble outlaw.

This is his story.

Stewart Binns is a successful documentary maker who began his career at the BBC. He has won a BAFTA, a Grierson, an RTS and a Peabody for his documentaries.
Passionate about English history, especially its origins and folklore, Conquest is Stewart's first novel.
