The post-Norman development of Fulford

Location of the


settlement of Gate Fulford

The landscape suggests that the earlier settlement of Gate Fulford was abandoned after the Norman Conquest. The pattern that emerges from the 1651 map reveals a classic post-Norman settlement.

There is some conjecture that the Roman route south ran along the line at the rear, to the south-west of the new village.

If this interpretation is correct, there were no buildings to impede the warriors during the battle.
