Chapter 1: Journey to Normandy

Scene 3: Harold lands at Ponthieu and is captured by Count Guy

Harold’s ship sails across the channel. From the mast of the boat, you can see a lookout spying land. It is Ponthieu, north of Normandy, a territory belonging to the fierce Count Guy. In this scene, Harold is shown twice. At the left, he stands on the ship, ready to land. On the right, he is shown disembarking the ship and being immediately seized by Count Guy's soldiers, whilst Count Guy directs operations from horseback.
