An English lookout, on the north side of Battle Hill, reports the news to King Harold that the Norman troops have been located. Having received the intelligence on William’s troop movements, Harold returns to his camp on Caldbec hill, in the great Andredsweald forest and rallies his men to action. The great Andredsweald forest originally covered much of Southern England. As stated in the Carmen de Hastigae, as William’s advance guard approached Caldbec Hill they saw before them ‘the fields glittering, full of glancing arms.’ In the top border appears Pegasus. A winged divine horse-god sired by Poseidon and foaled by the Gorgon Medusa.
