Dove did William fight Harold for the English Throne?

Harold and William's armies met on Senlac Hill*, seven miles (10 km) from Hastings.(Today the village where the battle took place is simply called Battle.)

Harold set up his defence at the top of Senlac Hill. This gave him an advantage over William as the Normans would have to fight up a hill wearing heavy chain mail armour. The Normans ran up hill whilst the English hurled axes and other objects down at them.

* novembre 2009 - Nuovo sito identified for 1066 Battle of Hastings
A new site for the Battle of Hastings has been identified by the historian and amateur archaeologist Nick Austin, two miles nearer the port of Hastings at
Crowhurst.

Crowhurst is a small village equidistant between Battle and Hastings. It's name is most likely to have come from the Anglo Saxon word 'Crohha hyrst' (muddy wooded hill). Crowhurst was known as Croghyrste in 772 and Croherst in the Domesday book of 1086 .

The manor at Crowhurst was owned by King Harold, and was completely destroyed by the Normans during the time of the battle of Hastings.

The site for the 1066 Battle of Hastings at Crowhurst, has been confirmed by the the discovery of a crossbow where Harold made his last stand and by analysis of "wasted" manor data in the Domesday Book.

"No archaeology has ever been found at Battle Abbey to support a battlefield location. it is clear to me that this is because the Battle of Hastings was not at Battle, but in what was then the Hastings locality of Crowhurst. That is why it became known as the Battle of Hastings". Nick Austin
