The Conquest of Morpeth

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.

"...published for young readers...aimed at helping them to learn more about Morpeth's history."
