    >>But Harold's army was right now positioned on that hill....
    Does that mean they rushed towards to fight (in order to take hold of the hill)

    Hoarold and his army were on the hill. William's men attacked them. (Charge is when you race forwards on horse or foot to attack)

    If I remember my history, the Normans couldn't break through and they pretended to run away, so Harold made the mistake of coming down the hill to attack them as they ran away. At which pointWilliam's men regrouped and turned round to fight, and won as Harold had now left his superior position.

    >>Uh-haw.... :D :D
    That's it, recently I am reading some online materials about British History... That's really Good... :P
    But the relationships between Norway, Denmark, England and Normandy is a little complicated, So I purchased a world atlas to help me to get a better understanding.
    Thx tdol....
