The battle draws to a close as night falls and the few survivors make their way back to the boats at Riccall. “Many thousands of men were slain there, Who at the battle there were struck down: A more deadly battle was never seen; Slain there was King Harfager, And Tostin his fierce companion. And men whose number I know not, So as to encumber the country; A riddance make of the bodies Which are torn in pieces, by the wolves and crows.”- Vitae Edwardi. In the lower border appears Cernunnos, the horned god of Celtic paganism. He holds a snake in one hand and a torc in the other. The Horned God reflects the seasons in a cycle of life, death and rebirth.
