Finding Fulford cover

Chas Jones has written a book which explains the events of 1066 leading to the battle of Fulford. The book challenges much of the received wisdom about the events of 1066.
  • The role of earl Tostig as the choreographer of the two invasions of 1066 is explored as is the routing of duke William's southern invasion by king Harold's navy.
  • Drawing on the research that has been carried out around the site at Fulford, the course of the battle is interpreted for the first time.
  • Was king Harold confident that duke William has already been defeated in an unreported sea battle before heading north?

On 20 September 1066 a battle of the size and duration of the clash a few weeks later at Hastings led to the defeat of the Northumbrian army.
