EDITORS COMMENTS
This evocative reconstruction drawing by Jason Askew, titled "Battle Abbey, East Sussex. Battle of Hastings 1066," transports us back to a pivotal moment in English history. The Norman Conqueror, William the Conqueror, stands victorious on a hill overlooking the battlefield, his horse rearing and pawing the ground. The Saxon soldiers, their shields raised in defense, charge forward, their weapons at the ready. The tension in the air is palpable as the two armies clash in the Battle of Hastings, fought on October 14, 1066. The intricate details of the armor and weapons worn by the soldiers are expertly rendered, showcasing the meticulous research and skill of the artist. The Norman knights, with their helmets and chainmail, contrast sharply with the Saxon soldiers, who wear leather armor and wield shields and spears. The battlefield itself is a chaotic scene of smoke and dust, with the ruins of Battle Abbey in the background, a poignant reminder of the religious and political significance of the battle. The Battle of Hastings marked the end of Anglo-Saxon England and the beginning of the Norman Conquest. William the Conqueror's victory brought about significant changes to English society, language, and culture. This powerful illustration serves as a visual reminder of the events that shaped the course of English history, and the enduring impact of the Battle of Hastings.
