Teacher sources: Battle of Hastings, 1066

World history teachers should note this site: Samurai Dave the Roving Ronin.

In a series of posts, the last of which appears to be December 11 (Wes’s birthday!), Samurai Dave posts the history of the Battle of Hastings, with videos of battle recreations, photos of recreation events, and commentary on the meaning of the battle in history.

I wager you’ll learn something. If nothing else, there are a lot of great photos for students to see what it was like (minus the blood and gore).

    I’ve seen it in the flesh (cloth?), and it is astounding.
