Here we see a man leading the horses from the beached longships. It seems apparent that the Normans have removed the Dragon’s head, as none of the landed Norman boats display them. The fleet was not allowed to be scattered; the ships all steered for the same point, and cast anchor as near together as possible in the haven of Pevensey Bay. The wide stretch of shore at this point would render such a course especially easy. As soon as the anchors were cast, the ships were run ashore, and the fighting men then landed in full battle array. The knights ride eastward making their way along the coast to Hastings. The Roman fort at Pevensey was later to become the property of Robert, Count of Mortain.
