William of Normandy was then crowned as King William I which meant the end of Anglo Saxon England! This marked the advent of Common Law in England which still affects us today 1000 years later. The abbey was built in 1070 by King William then known as ‘the conqueror’. It was a symbol of his victory and served as a memorial to the dead whose corpses covered the fields for over 100 acres of the battle site. It stands today as a symbol of Norman triumph over England and its said that the high altar in the church itself stands on the spot that King Harold died on. Abbey museum explores the history of the abbey and contains a selection of historical items found during excavations of the site.
