Summary

Dan Snow concludes his journey in Yorkshire. The north of England suffered a series of brutal military campaigns known as the Harrying of the North, that ended up with the Normans taking control all over the country. The historian examines the architectural legacy of the invasion, visiting landmarks such as Helmsley Castle and Rievaulx Abbey, and learns how a local lord established an institution that revolutionised the community and trade of the moors.
