This is post number 1066, so it must be the Battle of Hastings.

Blogger tells me this is my 1,066th post on this blog, so what could be more appropriate, I thought, than to feature a live video of the last successful hostile military invasion of Old Blighty, which happened in the year 1066 and culminated in the Battle of Hastings. The authentic re-enactment shown in the video above was done by Twice a Fortnight, a group formed in 1967 that included future Monty Python cast members Terry Jones and Michael Palin, along with Tony Buffery, Graeme Garden, Jonathan Lynn, and Bill Oddie.
