On this day in 1066, the Battle of Hastings occurred. It is an important date in English history, since it is the day that Harold II Godwinson, the last Anglo-Saxon king, died. Harold II’s death paved the way for William the Conqueror to become the first Norman King of England. Being English, I find this date to be important. It marks the end of an era and the beginning of a new one in English history.
So to mark the events of the 14th October 1066, I honoured Harold II and the other war dead who fell on this day. I also honoured Hestia, Eris, Ares and Athene, gods whom I find to be especially important on this day.
