All students of British history associate Hastings with the battle that ultimately won Duke William of Normandy the crown of England on 14th October, 1066. As part of my three-year research project on multilingual practices in England
in the ‘long twelfth century’, I paid a visit to the places where my long century began: Hastings and the small town of Battle - the site of the 1066 battle, just fifteen
minutes from Hastings by train.
