—Battle of Hastings, 1066 —

Stalemate

The successful Norman counter-attack brings the first phase of the battle to an end.
It is probably early afternoon before the first phase of the battle has come to a close. Neither side has yet won a clear advantage. By now the men on both sides must be exhausted, though the English are probably still being gradually reinforced by late arrivals.
Duke William is under increasing pressure to bring the battle to a decisive conclusion. Once again he orders his men forward.
From here it is easy to appreciate the landscape of the battlefield. The outline of the hill opposite, which was occupied by the English army, is clearly visible but its slope has been terraced to accommodate the buildings of the monastery.
