    Hey, just thought Id give you guys a head up. Just saw the first episode of this two part tv show, in which the three main battles of 1066 are documented. Except, its entirely recreated, and seen through the eyes of the soldiers themselves. Its really good, accurate too.

    There was the battle of Fulford, before Stamford Bridge, where two saxon earls tried, and failed, to stop the Vikings.
