Normans attacking Hereward the Wake's refuge
Hereward the Wake, also known as Hereward the Outlaw or Hereward the Exile (1035-1072) - an Anglo-Saxon nobleman and a leader of local resistance to the Norman Conquest of England. His base was the Isle of Ely in East Anglia, giving Hereward an excellent natural defence, which was only breached when the Normans build a stone bridge out to the Island (as shown here).
