Secret Hastings and St Leonards


Category: Books
Description: Today Hastings (and neighbouring St Leonards-on- Sea) is a busy seaside town, popular with holidaymakers and day trippers wanting to soak up its coastal heritage and historic charm. Known to many for the famous battle of 1066, which was not actually fought at Hastings, the town has so much more to offer. In this book author Tina Brown reveals many little-known stories about Hastings including the fact that the town was the birthplace of television - invented by John Logie Baird - and that the unique Piece of Cheese Cottage in the old quarter was built as a result of a bet in 1871. As well as these, its secret places will be explored, including places connected to smuggling such as the Mortuary House with its cold chamber and coffin hatches, and the Stag Inn, which was frequented by the smugglers. Secret Hastings & St Leonards explores the lesser-known episodes and characters of the town through the centuries. With tales of remarkable people, unusual events and tucked-away historical buildings, it will appeal to all those with an interest in the history of this East Sussex town.

The Battle Of Hastings


Category: Books
Description: The Battle of Hastings is probably the best-known and perhaps the most significant battle in English history. Its effects were deeply felt at the time, causing a lasting shift in cultural identity and national pride. Jim Bradbury here explores the full military background to the battle and investigates both the sources for our knowledge of what actually happened in 1066 and the role that the battle plays in national myth. The Battle of Hastings starts by looking at the Normans - who they were, where they came from - and the career of William before 1066. Next, Jim Bradbury turns to the Saxons in England, and to Harold Godwineson, successor to Edward the Confessor, and his attempts to create unity in the divided kingdom. This provides the background to an examination of the military development of the two sides up to 1066, detailing differences in tactics, arms and armour. The core of the book is a move-by-move reconstruction of the battle, including the advance planning, the site, the composition of the two armies and the use of archers, feigned flights and the death of Harold. This is a book that anyone interested in England's most famous battle will find indispensable.
