After giving hostages and taking oaths, those men that did not participate in the battle were allowed to depart for Norway. According to the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle they left on 24 ships, Geoffrey Gaimar says 20 ships and Lingard claims 12 ships. “All the ships and their harness King Harold seized. The king's son was found there. He was led to Harold, Mercy he begged, ransom he promised. Harold took homage of him; And of all the rest He took good and worthy hostages. With twenty ships he let them go. Then they rowed till they reached the sea.”- Gaimar. In the lower border more scenes of harvesting appear. A tree divider marks the end of the departure scene.
