Battle of Hastings – the Crowhurst Malfosse video
Here is a further investigation of ‘the Malfosse’, one of the most remarkable episodes in the most famous battle in English history, revealed in HD footage.
Duke William of Normandy lost dozens of mounted knights at the end of the Battle of Hastings following Harold’s death. A sizeable contingent of victorious Normans pursued the English as dusk was falling, cantering off the battlefield after them onto a wooden path where they plunged headlong into a precipitous ravine to their deaths.
The infamous incident became known as the ‘Malfosse’ after the French for ‘evil ditch’. A Malfosse capable of wreaking such havoc does not exist at the purported Battle of Hastings site at Battle Abbey.
