Timeline - World History Documentaries
The Normans that invaded England in 1066 came from Normandy in Northern France. However, they were originally Vikings from Scandinavia. From the eighth century Vikings terrorized continental European coastlines with raids and plundering. The proto-Normans instead settled their conquests and cultivated land. Over time they assimilated into medieval European society, abandoned paganism, and upheld conventional Christian norms.

The hunky macho Norman knights! Brilliant! Makes me think of "Les No ... les No ... les NoNoNo" Poor old Goudurix! King Stephen however was a very decent sort of person, very kindly and humane, which for those days was really something.

So , thinking of your own national identity, is just xenophobic.

Cool

Cool documentary but at some point I got distracted by that haunting celtic melody starting at 23:22 and went off to MuseScore to play with it... But a few notes: Edward the 1st - yes, that's longshanks from Braveheart, he was actually a french-speaking Norman. Macbeth: little is actually known about the historical figure and drinking boiled frog's legs is more likely to summon James I (to appease whom Skakey wrote the unnameable) rather than Mr Brief Candle himself. And finally: so we have a bunch of frenchified Scandinavians to blame for all that hostility that still exists between the English, Irish, Scottish and Welsh?

The French are awesome.

43:28 is the only thing you need to take home from this documentary.

Identity theft, identity oppression are not uncommon in Europe. The Scythians were almost wiped from the history books yet their culture was foundational.

And don't forget that other great Norman realm -that of the Norman kings and later part Norman Holy Roman Emperors of Sicily and southern Italy -one of the strongest states in western Europe at the time.

The Viking or Scandinavian element in the Normans would have been quite modest -probably only a warrior elite -most of the people of the duchy of Normandy would have consisted of the pre-Viking population -Franks,Armoricans(Bretons) Romano-Gallic etc -it would have been a lot smaller than the Anglo-Saxon component in Great Britain -after all the English language was adopted in most of Britain but the Vikings failed to impose Danish or any Germanic language -French won out hands down!

They lost their identity when in the Tudors time they allowed the use of a barbaric Germanic language instead of civilized French.

Strongbow 'first man to invade Ireland'. Yeah Right. Never heard of Ivar The Boneless or the Battle of Clontarf when my father's Vikings from Orkney (Rollo of Normandy also came from the Orkney Isles and they were all related in the same tribe) fought against mum's lot with Brian Boru.

Richard Lionheart was not the Ashole idiot they claim he was here, he was a hero
This is just the usual propagandistic denotation of everything great with the western culture and history.

When I read the title about “Normans” I first thought we’d get some instruction on Norsemen who came before and who actually created the Normans.
