The Battle of Stamford Bridge, from The Life of King Edward the Confessor by Matthew Paris.

The Battle of Stamford Bridge is often overshadowed by the more famous Battle of Hastings, which took place just under 3 weeks later. Yet, this battle was a huge victory for King Harold Godwinson, as he fought off invading Norwegian forces. Many historians consider this battle to be symbolic of the end of the Viking Age: its importance should not be overlooked.
