The Normans seem to be getting the upper hand as the battle continues. Many
more soldiers die, one appears to be having his head cut off. On the right is the
best known scene in the Tapestry: the Normans killing King Harold. But how is
Harold killed? He seems to be shown twice: first plucking an arrow from his eye,
and then being hacked down by a Norman knight. The tapestry is difficult to
interpret here, but the second figure is probably Harold being killed.
