20 minutes
Describe two features of the Harrying of the North (4 marks)
Explain why the harrying of the North took place (12 marks)

You may use:

Death of Robert Cumin
You must also use information of your own
The most important consequence of the Harrying of the North was it ended rebellion against William in the North. Do you agree? (16 marks)

You may use:
Domesday Book
You must also use information of your own.

4 mark - 2 paras - point and support twice

12 mark - 3 paras and links and order

16 marks 4 paras opening statement - links - order- conclusion

Why have you placed the paras as you have?
First thing that comes in to your head or is there some kind of plan?
Order of time?
Order of importance?
Some other order?

Do your paras have internal order?
One way in which you might argue William was a good man was that he was clearly very religious. He founded many religious institutions such as Abbeys and he supported Lanfranc's reform of the church including those changes designed to make it more spiritual such as the law on celibacy for priests. We are also told that he repented his harshness in the Harrying of the North. In this way William proved his devotion to God and showed his good qualities.

Conclusion - repeat opening statement - say why - (most important reason why) - other views (Some may disagree with this view because) - why they are wrong - Strong last line

Shallow word links- Furthermore - however - another -firstly - secondly - thirdly

Deeper internal links e.g. ' this greed of William's led to some rash actions. For example William of Malmesbury tells us...'

This links back to the opening paragraph and takes us forward to a new point

Link to the question - make sure every para and the conclusion links back to the question

revenge for the killing of Normans including the North's governor Robert Cumin
Livestock, seed and homes were destroyed
The North could never be a base for Viking invasion
Maybe 100000 died
Even 20 years later it may be that up to 150000 fewer people lived in the North
Even the Pope criticised William's actions
