Thanks to William the First England is today England as we know it. In many English text-books I read about William the Conqueror. The only thing I knew about him was his invasion of England. But I knew nothing more about him. Why was he called “the Conqueror”? Where was he born? Who were his parents, children and much more. That’s why we decided to learn more about this historical person. Actuality of our work is based on this matter.

Where did you get the information about him? Our school is a special one. We have pupils villages and our town. The knowledge is very different. We got the following results among 100 pupils. 10% of town pupils know about him from TV channels and books. 13% of village pupils remember his name from the text-books and English lessons. 77% know nothing. (see appendix I) Basing on these results we came to conclusion to make a booklet devoted to this outstanding person.
