A group which aims to celebrate and commemorate the Battle of Stamford Bridge is embarking on two major projects this year, and is inviting people to get involved.

The Battle of Stamford Bridge Society, launched in 2012, plans to create a Stamford Bridge Tapestry and hold an archaeological dig.

The tapestry, telling the story of the Battle of Stamford Bridge, is expected to take between two and five years to complete.

Full story in this week’s (8 January) Pocklington Post.
