THE GENERALIST has been alerted by Nick Austin, author of ‘Secrets of the Norman Invasion’, to the New Battle of Hastings. Nick and many others are of the view that in 1066 the Normans did not land at Pevensey and fight Harold at Battle Abbey. Instead they believe the site of the Norman encampments and the battle itself are located in different but nearby location which remains in a pristine state at present. Despite compelling evidence, this new site has never been properly excavated. What makes the situation more imperative is that East Sussex County Council want to build a new ring road that will run right through this landscape, destroying forever what may prove to be one of the most important battlefield sites in Europe.
