Finding Fulford is published

After 3 years writing and 2 years editing, the printed version of the report into the work at Fulford was published early in 2011.

To make the research as widely available as possible, an ebook version for Amazon’s Kindle has also been published. This can be downloaded for a few dollars.

There are also large sections of the report on the fulfordbattle.com website.

Tapestry website launched

fulfordtapestry.info should take you to the website dedicated to the story of the making of the Fulford tapestry.

Launched in a beta version at the end of May 2012,  your comments would be welcome.

We hope that we can link up with others who are working on similar projects.

The Fulford Tapestry in launched

tapestry_scroll_jan12_smlIn February 2012, during the Jorvik festival in York, our tapestry went on display for the first time. The reception was terrific and the embroiderers were there to answer questions and continue work on the final images.

We also decided to name it ‘The Fulford Tapestry’ as the project title, which was ‘The Yorkshire Preface to the Bayeux Tapestry’ was too much of a mouthful. Happily folk out there are beginning to recognise that Fulford was the place of the first of the battles of 1066.

So welcome to the Fulford Tapestry.
