Scene 2 - Surrender of the English Nobles
Early December 1066
Surrender of the English Nobles to William I

Romney, Dover, Canterbury and Winchester have submitted to William. London resisted William, but now William has cut them off from resupplies by destroying a path about 20 miles wide to the south and west of London. He has crossed the Thames at Wallingford and has reached Berkhamsted where the nobles of London submit to his rule. The English party consists of Edwin of Northumbria, Morcar of Mercia, the Archbishop of Canterbury, the Archbishop of York and Edgar the Aetheling, the only remaining member of the English royal house. The caption reads, ‘Here the nobles of London surrender.’
