Clifford’s Tower

English Heritage re-enactors prepare to leave Clifford’s Tower in York on foot and horseback as they follow the 300-mile route of King Harold to the site of the Battle of Hastings. The journey marks the 950th anniversary of the Battle of Hastings in 1066 where the forces of King Harold and Duke William of Normandy met in battle on October 14, 1066 on the outskirts of Hastings. William won the battle and was crowned king on Christmas day 1066. The battle marked the beginning of the Norman conquest of England.
