Paying Homage With Relics

Harold realised that he had no choice but to pay homage to William if he was ever to be allowed home and secure the release of Wulfnot and Harkon. This plate depicts the act of homage over holy relics. This must have affected Harold. This was the last thing he had ever wanted to do. What gave him comfort and which was confirmed to him on his return was that it was made under duress and hence, not valid. Only Harkon, his nephew, was allowed to return home with him. His brother Wulfnot remained a hostage for obvious reasons.
