I'm fully behind galoshers on this one. The poor bloke makes what he considers to be a sensible contribution to the debate on Time Team. Such contributions, let us remember, are the lifeblood of this forum.
He is then sucked into a war of words out of which nobody emerges with any credit. Let us have a sensible conclusion to this topic.

I never realised there was any doubt as to the location of the battle. In the 90's I worked not far from Hastings and managed to visit the Abbey. If I remember correctly it is stated that the Abbey was built at the site of the battle as a mark of respect for all those who perished, Harold and the English included. At the abbey you look out on to the adjoining fields and an information board depicts where all the different factions were sited etc.

Cardiffian,  I think this is what sparked the debate. I remember seeing something about it on T.V.  where the two sites were visited and the argument put forward.

If you look on Youtube there are a few videos about the different places, some show a metal detecting survey run by the main proponent of the site being wrong
Crowhurst Battle of Hastings site

Having organised surveys for several years in connection with the 60-61 Group I have to say I'm less that impressed by their technique  Huh
