Battle of Hastings chess pieces set
Please note the chess board is not included with these handmade chess pieces
This stunning chess set is based on the famous Battle of Hastings in which King Harold II of England opposed the invading Norman army led by William the Duke of Normandy on October 14th 1066. After the hard fought battle of Stamford Bridge, in which he defeated and killed Harold Hardrada King of Norway who had invaded Northumbria, Harold and his Saxon army marched from York to the South Coast of England. At the small village of Battle, just inland from Hastings, Harold's army met the invading forces of William Duke of Normandy. These chess pieces are authentic reproductions of the characters, clothing and equipment of the era. Hand-sculpted in the UK, this Battle of Hastings set comes complete with a beautiful presentation box.
