Harald Hardrada met his death in 1066, fighting at Stamford Bridge against King Harold Godwinson of England. The story goes that when shown, at his own request, the fatal arrow that had been taken out of him he remarked, "yes, the man who made this knew his trade". Snorri Sturluson's saga tells us quite a lot about Harald, and here, Henry Treece, creates part of Harald's early life in the form of a novel. [Suggest a different description.]
