It was a battle that led to his death and marked the end of an era in which Europe had been dominated by the threat of Scandinavian forces. Despite Englands triumph, it also played a crucial part in fatally weakening the English army immediately prior to the Norman Conquest, changing the course of history.

Taken from the Heimskringla - Snorri Sturlusons complete account of Norway from prehistoric times to 1177 - this is a brilliantly human depiction of the turbulent life and savage death of the last great Norse warrior-king.
