For those of you who are not aware of what is happening at Fulford - Persimmon homes are poised to start building on what is believed to be the site of the Battle in 1066. English Heritage have not registered the site as an 'Ancient Monument' which will protect it and, despite huge amount of evidence, still will NOT!!
Chas Jones has been leading the campaign to have the site registered for many years and will be using all the new evidence in his legal case against English Heritage.
Having worked for 5 days on the dig and seen what has been found I believe that the case will be won. It is something we ALL must get involved in OR a piece of history will be lost.
Please go to the Battle of Fulford website to see the whole story and take a look at this short video from Chas Jones which gives a good overview.
