"William the Conqueror's victory at Hastings in October 1066 marks sharply and decisively the end of the Anglo-Saxon state, but only if we define that term as meaning a state with an Anglo-Saxon king at its head. No-one suppose that this civilization which spanned a period of roughly 500 years - as long as the Wars of the Roses to the present day- could have been destroyed as the result of a single battle."
