Eight months after Harold II's succession in January 1066, the Viking king of Norway, Harald Hardrada, launched a major invasion of England. This book presents the story of that battle of 1066 - what became of Harold II's army in the run-up to the battle of Hastings and the final discovery of the battlefield site itself.
