In a recent special episode of Time Team looking for the location of the 1066 battle of Hastings, the archaeologists needed to resort to using a Post Glacial Flood map to locate the exact location of the famous site.

This should be no surprise to my regular readers as my map series has already found countless errors in our history already and will continue to do so in the future as more areas are published and made available to the general public (unlike the time team maps!!). I have included an article for those who missed the programme - but note the last paragraph of this article which shows the blatant censorship the archaeological world has on anything new even when it is proved to be correct.
According to the Daily Telegraph online:
"The precise location for the Battle of Hastings has long been in dispute, with competing historians making claims for three rival sites. Now, an investigation by Channel 4’s Time Team has concluded the battle – and the death of England’s last Anglo-Saxon king – was actually centred on a fourth site: a road junction on the A2100 in East Sussex.
Darvill and Wainright in Current Archaeology
The following artice was published in Current Archaeology about Stonehenge in December 2013. The most interesting aspect of the article was additional interpretation they included in a section called 'Watery Worlds' :
'The 3rd key theme that has emerged from our work is the link between the monuments and water. In the Preseli Hills, many of the stone monuments lie close to natural springs and watercourses. At Carn Menyn, springs issue from the rocks that were the focus of quarrying and extraction. Some of these springheads have even been elaborated with the construction of a wall to create a small pool. Cairns sometimes stand around the springhead, and some springs were enhanced by the addition of rock art on stones around the rim. Water from many of the springs is considered to have healing powers, and some were adopted as holy wells in recent times.
Springs are increasingly being recognised as important focal points in the Stonehenge landscape. Investigations by David Jacques [Open University] at Blick Mead on the west side of Amesbury have revealed that the spring here is associated with activity from the 6th millenium BC through into recent times (CA 271). As well as thousands of pieces of worked Mesolithic flint, his excavations revealed a broken Bronze Age dagger, a lead object likely to be a Romano- British curse, and a 5th century AD Anglo-Saxon disc brooch. Most importantly, at Stonehenge itself, the reconfiguration of the bluestone setting in Stage 3 coincides with the construction of The Avenue as a ceremonial way leading to whatever watercourse lay in Stonehenge Bottom at this time, and then onwards 2.1 km SE to the River Avon
