Harrying of the North: King William of England (William the Conqueror) reacts to rebellions made by his Anglo-Saxon subjects against him. He rides through the north of England with his army and burns houses, crops, cattle and land from York to Durham, which results in the deaths of over 100,000 people, mainly from starvation and winter cold.
