    The Normans : the history of a dynasty by David Crouch( Book )
    5 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 399 libraries worldwide
    "The Normans is the history of a dynasty. It is also the history of ruthless ambition, rivalry and war between brothers and cousins. The Norman Conquest of England in 1066 was a critical moment in history. Following the death of Harold at the battle of Hastings, it established William, duke of Normandy, on the throne of England. By ending Anglo-Saxon rule, it tied England to Normandy and to involvement in France for the next five hundred years." "The Normans were pioneers of strong government, vigorous builders of churches and castles, and fierce warriors. William I's death was followed by civil war and continued tension between England and Normandy, unresolved at the time of the death of William Rufus in a hunting accident in the New Forest in 1100. Peace under Henry I was followed by final eclipse after the Anarchy of Stephen's reign, when 'Christ and his saints slept'. David Crouch, one of the leading historians of the period, tells the dramatic story of a remarkable dynasty."--Jacket
    History and community : Norman historical writing in the eleventh and twelfth centuries by Leah Shopkow( Book )
    3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 305 libraries worldwide
    Leah Shopkow presents an insightful study of the functions and meanings of history. She makes clear that historical writing is neither simply a source for data on times past nor a form of disinterested literary expression. Medieval histories were complex cultural phenomena. Her study will be of great interest to historiographers and will become a standard work for Normanists and Anglo-Normanists
