Example text

There are several descriptions of landings, but none so full or effective as the disembarkation of the Normans in 1066. The duke had a great chivalry Li dus out grant chevalrie and many ships in his fleet; e mult out nes en sa navie, moult out archiers, mult out selyanz, many archers, many sergeants, brave and warlike men, homes hardie e combatanx, carpenters and engineers, carpentiers e engigneors, good smiths and metalworkers. boens fevres e boens ferreiors, The ships steered to one port les nes sunt a un port tornees, and reached shore together.

He gives the correct number of ships (according to De Belio Gallico) for Caesar's first invasion, and underestimates for his second. The size of the fleets does not interest Geoffrey of Monmouth, though Wace borrows his vivid description of the holing of vessels by shore defences (B 4,243-59). In most sources little time is spent discussing how ships get from A to B. Not only does Wace provide vivid descriptions of embarking and disembarking, but also of storms which made sea travel so perilous.

It is an activity as commonplace as war itself. All this devastation is far from senseless, and Wace is aware of its more immediate strategic goals.
