This summer BBC Two, BBC Four and BBC Learning will be joining forces to highlight the effect that the Normans have had on our civilisation.
The Norman Season launches Hands On History, a two-year learning campaign offering audiences inspiring opportunities to take the next step from watching programmes to discovering history around them. Hands On History will offer a range of events and activities as part of the Norman Season, including Norman walks.
