The 4'x2' model was built by Will Jones based on the evidence produced from the many soil surveys and core samples. 

The model has been labeled to help people locate modern features as the route of the beck has been changed in the centre of the battle.

This view looks to the east across the site from the far side of river Ouse. The river was tidal in 1066 and it was along the bank the king Harald led his best Norse troops to cross the beck and outflank earl Morcar's army who were 'advancing bravely' in the centre.

There are no building shown as no evidence of any structures in the area has been found. The trees and bushes have been placed on the basis of boundaries that exist on early maps.



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 Field, flood-plane housing estate. Visiting Fulford        Map York

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