1066 HastingsPublisher: GLC
1066 Hastings was released by GLC. 1066 Hastings includes 1 style. p > In 1066, William, duke of Normandy, was invading England. He was demanding the crown for himself, against King Harold the Saxon. He eliminated Harold and reached the crown at Hastings, the popular battlefield.

A couple of years later on, in Bayeux (Normandy, French) was shown a big tapestry (nearly 70 m long) who was telling the story of the conquest. Along the tapestry was written a comment in Latin, using Roman capitals affected a little by English or Scandinavian design (as it shows up in the Eth character).

We have actually produced the font, motivated from this style, adjusted for contemporary users, making distinction between U and V, I and J, which has not any relevance for ancient Latin scribes, and naturally with Thorn, Oslash, Lslash ... and typical accented characters did not exist at the time.

We also have rebuilded the K, German double s and Z, constantly using patterns of the time. We have actually scrupulously respected the poetic irregular and distressed initial types with 2 or three alternate for each characters, including reconstructed characters.
