This site started as a document filed with the Highways Agency in the UK (23rd December 1994) as evidence to be presented at a Public Inquiry to determine the route of the Bexhill to Hastings bypass, since the proposed route passes through the centre of the site being investigated. It has since grown as a result of the subsequent public inquiry and continuing search for evidence. It contains information on one of the greatest stories of human history and reveals more than first meets the eye. I hope that you enjoy the read and are wiser as a result.
In order to evaluate the hypothesis contained in this document it is necessary to follow the logic of the document in chronological order.

Start of original manuscript (23rd December 1994)


The following work arose out of my insatiable desire to know exactly where the Normans landed prior to the Battle of Hastings. This interest was awakened shortly after moving to the village of Crowhurst (one of Harold's personal manors) where I was able to hear at first hand some of the local accounts of the Norman landing and search for Norman remains in the village.

Over the last six years I have tried to read everything important associated with Norman landings and the battle and have spent many months carrying out detailed searches of the documents contemporary with the battle. I have become increasingly alarmed at the discrepancies between the texts and the lie of the land where the landings were supposed to have taken place. In this work I attempt to explain how all these discrepancies can be reconciled only if the contextual references are applied to a landing site different from Pevensey.

The text that follows is divided into two parts. The first part deals with the clues to the landing site contained in the contemporary source documents, whilst the second part looks at the physical evidence thrown up by surveys, aerial photographs, field walking and archaeological work.
