A modern re-enactor dressed as a herald. The aftermath of any medieval battle was a time for the heralds. It was generally heralds who were expected to identify the dead, but they also collected stories of the actions of nobles and knights so that the tale of the battle could be turned into songs or poems, and the main details recorded by chroniclers.
