The Battle of Hastings 1066

By Lawson, M. K.

Tempus Pub Ltd. Fine. 2002. Softcover. 0752419986 . Soft cover in Fine condition " 1066 remains the most evocative date in English history, when Harold was defeated by William the Conqueror and England changed overnight from Saxon to Norman rule. It has long been believed that, according to the Bayeux Tapestry, Harold was shot in the eye by an arrow. M. K. Lawson argues that the tapestry was badly restored in the 19th century, and that we should not necessarily believe what we see. He goes to sources that depict the tapestry before that restoration and reveals some breathtaking insights which will revolutionize the way we view both the battle and the death of England?s last Saxon king.
