Once upon a time the Normans came to Northumberland.
After fearsome battles, they conquered Morpeth and made the people build a castle.
These are the stories about how it happened, told by children who were there.
· Boys who became soldiers and learned to kill
· Girls who were made to marry men they hadn’t chosen
· A poor village girl who had to do the dirty jobs, and the lord who was afraid of the devils.
There wasn’t always a “happy ever after” ending.
Read these stories and find out who won and who lost; who was brave and who was afraid.
