Early map of Fulford

You can read a lot from an old map. It help to plan where you need to find out what is going on below the surface - Historians don't usually get their hands dirty but when they do they can often discover even more about their past.

A model of the Fulford landscape in 1066 which was produced after many years research.

This model was built to show how the land looked in 1066, based on the work that was done to drill dozens of holes.

We can calculate that the high tide in September would have flooded the ford, in the middle, until about midday.


After lots of drilling holes, it was possible to reconstruct the landscape.


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
