Several chroniclers of the 11th century, including William of Poitiers, the monk William of Jumièges and Guy, Bishop of Amiens, chaplain to Queen Matilda, gave a fairly detailed impression of how events unfolded. As mentioned above, religion was very important in the Middle Ages, so the winner of the Battle of Hastings was indeed said to be appointed by God. The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, a compilation of several chronicles written in English abbeys, echoed this sentiment, explaining the defeat as divine punishment.
Other sources provide more of an insight into the vessel. The most widely known of these is the Bayeux Tapestry, created prior to 1070, which recounts the entire epic of the Norman Conquest through 58 scenes embroidered on linen cloth. The tapestry is also the only visual representation of Mora.
