The Falcon Banner has posted a new item, 'The Battle of Hastings
<http://falconbanner.gladiusinfractus.com/2017/10/14/the-battle-of-hastings/>'


On this day the Battle of Hastings was fought.

The battle lasted all day, unusual for this time, and both sides had
approximately 7000 men.  Most scholars agree that, if Harold had waited a
few days while more of the fyrd and nobles gathered to his banner, he would
have had a much better chance of defeating William.

The outcome changed English history, but even more it changed the English
language. It marks the effective end of the Old English period, and the
beginning of the Middle English period.
