Re-enactors from across the world have helped to restage the battle that was a defining moment in English history.

Performers have lived on the site in 11th Century-style encampments during the weekend of the battle.

Re-enactments on the actual battlefield in Hastings take place every year, but the charity said this was the largest restaging attempted so far.
