The demise of both the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings in the battles of 1066 CE ushered in a new era of history in northern Europe and England, in particular, where the Normans replaced the Anglo-Saxon ruling elite, the Church was similarly restructured, and much closer ties with continental Europe were established, especially with France, something which would have a tremendous bearing on the history of the two countries over the following centuries.The battle is brought alive and given an immediacy unique among medieval conflicts by the Bayeux Tapestry. This tells the story of the events from 1064 to the end of the battle in a sequence of pictorial scenes. The tapestry was probably made soon after the conquest for William’s half-brother Bishop Odo of Bayeux, who features prominently in it.
One of the great records of the Battle of Hastings is the Bayeux Tapestry. Produced between 1067 and 1079 CE, the tapestry measures around 68 metres by 50 cm and depicts in detail many aspects of the Norman Conquest and the events leading up to it, but it is a propaganda piece, reinforcing William’s claim to the English throne and, for example, omitting the Battle of Stamford Bridge. Nevertheless, the images on the tapestry (actually an embroidery) are striking, particularly of the Battle of Hastings and the death of Harold.

To win, the English needed to stay behind their shield wall, allow the Normans to be decimated in repeated assaults, and then sweep forward to defeat the invaders.

On 25 September Harold’s army met Hardrada’s force at Stamford Bridge, a wide meadow somewhere to the east of the River Derwent. Hardrada’s men were caught by surprise as they were expecting that day to negotiate the release of hostages from York after the city’s capitulation the day before. The invaders thus had the distinct disadvantage of being without their mail armour coats - they had left them in their camp following the victory celebrations after Fulford Gate. The fighting was over within a day, and both Hardrada and Tostig were killed. The battle was a complete victory for Harold, with the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle recording that there were only enough survivors from the invading army to fill 24 ships, which sailed back home under the command of Hardrada’s son, Olaf. Harold had seen off one of the players for his crown but it was the more dangerous of his two rivals who now had to be faced in the south.Hardrada amassed an invasion fleet of perhaps around 300 ships, although some estimates go as high as 500. His army may have numbered around 12,000 warriors. Landing off the north-east coast of England near the mouth of the River Tyne on 8 September, Hardrada was there joined by a small fleet of perhaps 12 ships commanded by Tostig. From there the two fleets sailed south and eventually landed at Ricall, just 16 km (10 miles) from the key city of York.

The Battle of Hastings (14 October 1066) was a pitched battle between the Anglo-Saxon English and an invading Norman army. The day-long battle ended in a decisive victory for the Normans. William, the Duke of Normandy, was crowned as King William I of England 10 weeks later. The Norman conquest was a major turning point in England's history
The Battle of Hastings in south-east England on 14 October 1066 CE saw the defeat of the Anglo-Saxon king Harold II (r. Jan-Oct 1066 CE) by the invading Norman army led by William, Duke of Normandy (reigned from 1035 CE). William claimed the throne of England had been promised to him by Harold’s predecessor, Edward the Confessor (r. 1042-1066 CE) and he invaded England to take by force the kingdom he considered rightfully his. After a day of heavy fighting, the Norman cavalry eventually proved more effective than the Anglo-Saxon infantry. Harold was killed, according to tradition, hit by an arrow to the eye and then hacked to pieces as he fell. The victor would be crowned king of England on Christmas Day of the same year and, over the next five years, his conquest of England would earn him the title of William the Conqueror. Hastings brought an end to 500 years of Anglo-Saxon rule and innumerable political, religious, and cultural changes over the coming decades as the Norman elite installed themselves throughout their new kingdom, setting up castles and creating such innovations as the Domesday Book. The Battle of Hastings was to shape the future of Medieval England. However, the battle took place about seven miles from Hastings - so in many respects it is misnamed.

The Anglo-Saxon sources have an alternative version, well, actually three scenarios: Harold’s trip to Normandy never took place, if it did it was merely an accident of the weather, or he merely went to Normandy in order to secure the release of some Anglo-Saxon prisoners. Finally, the English maintained after Hastings that even if the Normans were right and Harold had made such a promise of vassalage to William, it having been made while held captive made it invalid. The modern scholarly consensus is that William’s claim to the English throne was a slight one but, as so often in history, such niceties as promises and oaths of loyalty meant very little compared to victory on the battlefield. Whatever William’s self-justification might have been, he was intent on invading England and he made extensive preparations to do so in the summer of 1066 CE. Slaget stod mellan de normandiska invasionsstyrkorna ledda av hertig Vilhelm II av Normandie och de anglosaxiska försvarsstyrkorna ledda av kung Harald Godwinson. Anglosaxarna hade just besegrat och i stridens hetta även tillintetgjort Harald Hårdråde vid Stamford Bridge då de utmattade anlände till Hastings efter en lång och dramatisk marsch på cirka 400 km på tretton dagar. Truppernas trötthet lär knappast heller ha varit mindre med tanke på att man först hade gjort motsvarande marsch i motsatt riktning och därpå utkämpat ett stort slag. Kung Harald tycks ha insett vikten av snabbhet inför detta nya normandiska hot, men har förmodligen gjort avgörande missar i andra viktiga taktiska delar som är vitala för en lyckad krigföring.

The feared Norse king Harald Hardraada ('hard ruler') led a veteran viking invasion army to northern England in mid-September, totally surprising the English- who were then waiting for William to invade on the south coast. Whilst King Harold Godwinson force-marched a hardened mounted/infantry army 190 miles north from London to destroy this major and unexpected threat, Hardraada smashed another English army (under earls Edwin and Morcar) at Gate Fulford, near York, September 20th. Five days later, at STAMFORD BRIDGE, Harold Godwinson in turn totally surprised Hardraada's unsuspecting army, and in a ferocious set-piece battle, the English massacred so many of their foes that they were finally allowed to sail home in just "24 out of 300" longships.
