Beginning as Viking raiders in the eighth century, the Normans not only changed the landscape of Europe but were changed by their new conquests. As a military force they became unstoppable; as Conqerors, they established their own kingdom in Normandy from where they set out on a number of devastating campaigns, where they also introduced innovations in politics, architecture and culture.
In A Brief History of the Normans Leading French historian, Francois Neveux, gives an accessible and authoritative introduction.

Do you want to know what eras this book includes?
Any additional comments?
This audiobook is:
a) about 11% early Norse culture and history
b) about 9% Viking history
c) about 7% Frankish history in and near to the area that would become Normandy
d) (I haven't listened yet, but I imagine the rest is about the Normans.)
Audible doesn't let you update your reviews, so that's all I can tell you.
