This weekend we've been to the Hastings to see the 940th Anniversary of the Battle between King Harold of England versus William of Normandy. The landscape where the battle took place, has ofcourse changed, but with this reconstruction of the battle, you can put yourself in the place of the men and women who came to fight here in 1066. The battle was one of the longest and bloodiest fought in Medieval times. There was lots to see....the arrival of King Harold, a Norman banquet, an archaery display, etc....and ofcourse the battle itself.
