The Battle of Hastings Chess set represents the two opposing armies in the most famous battle fought on English soil. The amazing detail created by the sculptors is richly displayed in this historic chess set which has been a favourite since its introduction. It is based on the Battle of Hastings in which King Harold II of England opposed, and was defeated by, an invading Norman army led by William Duke of Normandy on October 14th 1066- an event that irrevocably altered the course of English history.
The regular Chess set is made from ground stone resin and comes in contrasting brown and ivory shades so that opposing pieces are easily distinguished. In the decorated version of the Chess set the clothing, weaponry and accessories have all been painstakingly hand-painted.
