Due to Lewis no longer taking part in the 1066 project, the competition was closed and the original prize of a visit to the film set withdrawn.
Author and 1066 co-writer Helen Hollick kindly offered a copy of her book Harold the King as a consolation prize, with every entrant's details going into a prize draw.
The winner chosen by the online random selector at www.random.org is: Cheryl Easton of Dumfriesshire.
