1. Sites on the Normans in General

I'm useful but a little more difficult!! Who were the Normans? A description by Regia Anglorum, a group who stage Viking battles throughout the year
I'm useful but a little more difficult!! The Normans: their history, arms & tactics Story of how one man has tried to recreate 11th century Norman arms & equipment. Good pictures.
I'm useful but a little more difficult!! The Norman Conquest Very detailed for researchers. However it can be frustrating to use because of its web design.
