Hi Anthony,

A question concerning using core samples to prove erosion has taken place -- if you are comparing marker levels at Fulford to other areas, how are you determining whether erosion occurred or simply non-deposition of sediment? Have you seen any indications of erosion in the subsurface; i.e. disconformable layers or angular unconformities? How are you proving erosion vs. non-deposition?

What was the cause of the erosion? Is that area of England generally subsiding causing increased fluvial erosion? What evidence is there of river migration? Has anyone mapped the river course over the last 1000 years?

If Fulford, in fact, had 6 ft of soil eroded over the last 1000 years or so, it would seem the chances of finding any archaeological evidence of the battlefield are slim to none. And if the river has meandered or migrated laterally, perhaps Chas is looking in the wrong area.

Regards -- Mike
