Hastings – 1066 & archery volleys



The Battle of Hastings took place on 14 October 1066. It was decisive in the Norman Conquest of England. The protagonists were the Norman army led by the Duke William II of Normandy and the English army of King Harold II. The battle took place at Senlac Hill, approximately 6 miles northwest of Hastings, close to the present-day town of Battle, East Sussex. Harold II was killed in the battle with an arrow in the eye, without their king, the English shield wall spread and its soldiers fled. William gained control of England, becoming its first Norman ruler as King William I.

The famous Bayeux Tapestry depicts the events before and during the battle. Battle Abbey in East Sussex was subsequently built on the site of the conflict.

    I have been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like
    yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be much more useful than ever before.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.

    A lot of times it’s tough to get that “perfect balance” between user friendliness and appearance. I must say that you’ve
    done a very good job with this. Additionally, the blog loads super
    quick for me on Chrome. Superb Blog!
