2003 has produced over 2 thousand finds, covering nearly 100,000 sq metres. The haul included 41% ferrous material.

2004 plans will attempt to cover the 95% of the site we have still to examine. To achieve this we will concentrate on non-ferrous items while we await the results of the analysis of the 1600 ferrous finds.

2005 very limited work possible because of restrictions imposed by the developers. The Finds total stands at over 6,000

And the work continued until 2007.

There is a site devoted to saving the battlesite: The site has the story of the process that has allowed the site to be designated an access road to a Green Belt, floodplain housing estate.

And another website for the Fulford Tapestry that tells the story of the September 1066: This tells the story embroidered into the panels.
