White Ship 900th Anniversary

Wednesday, 25 November 2020

Today is the 900th anniversary of the sinking of the White Ship off the coast of Barfleur. An earlier news post noted the publication of the new history of this event by Charles Spencer. To mark the day you can listen to this recent twenty-five minute conversation between the author and Dan Snow on the History Hit podcast (5 September issue). If Charles Spencer has stirred an interest in the period readers might want to continue by reading the English Monarchs book on King Henry I by C. Warren Hollister.
