As King Harold falls in battle the final assault is mounted on the main military command centre. The sons of Godwine had fallen, and England had fallen with them. But they did not at once cease. As long as there was a ray of light, as long as an English arm had strength to lift an axe, the personal following of King Harold continued. Worn out by the strain of a long battle, the highest nobility of England were slaughtered to a man and no man was taken prisoner. As the battle scenes draw to a close we see looting taking place in the lower border and the collection of arms and armour from the battlefield. The man wielding the axe might be ‘the wrestler’. A knight known to have killed many Normans.
