Hi Nick,I’ve been following your work & website with a great deal on interest.
I think your arguments for the landing site and the location of the Malfoss as being very persuasive. I hope you are able to find concrete proof.
As regards battlefield finds – you may find the work carried out by Charles Jones in locating the battlefield at Fulford helpful-
Charles verified the site by finding that the waste left after the battle was in fact recycled by the Vikings into new weapons & armour & it was this residue from the smelting operation that helped clinch it.
Like you though Charles is fighting to save the Fulford site from developers.
Anyway, good luck with your fight
Nick: this gives some idea of the difficulty we face – no recoverable iron objects found to date on any battlefield of this age etc and why earthworks are so important.
