    Harold swears an oath to William. Each of these shields carries an armorial bearing. There remain only the eye and the picture meant for the eye. You have there the conventional marks of the palace, the king in the full garb of his kingship but The Bayeux Tapestry book armed; a messenger, and beneath him the hull of ships.

It is, of course, the chief matter of historical dispute in the whole business whether Harold did make that promise or no.

    The illustrations of the horses are particularly praised for its accuracy. Along the The Bayeux Tapestry book and the bottom run decorative borders with figures of animals, scenes from the fables of Aesop and Phaedrusscenes from husbandry and the chase, and occasionally scenes related to the main pictorial narrative. The round bullet head and square shoulders of the Gaul the slight and distant strain of Scandinavian blood seems to have influenced neither his soul nor his body are emphasized in this first introduction of him, and it is possible so to emphasize the portrait because he is so represented in this early part of the series neither helmeted nor crowned. What is the alternative?
