The Aftermath of the Battle Of Hastings
The aftermath of the Battle meant that the Normans had to mourn and bury their dead...
"The morrow was Sunday; and those who had slept upon the field of battle, keeping watch around and suffering great fatigue, bestirred themselves at break of day and sought out and buried such of the bodies of their dead friends as they might find.
The noble ladies of the land also came, some to seek their husbands, and others their fathers, sons, or brothers.
They bore the bodies to their villages and interred them at the churches; and the clerks and priests of the country were ready, and at the request of their friends took the bodies that were found, and prepared graves and lay them therein."
