Photo of the site of the Battle of Hastings in England

This field (near the town now called Battle, for some reason!) is where the 1066 Battle of Hastings is believed to have taken place. There is a tourist trail around the field which uses an audio guide to tell the story of the battle. It's a great experience, and for a radio fan like me, it really helped me imagine what it must have been like at the battle. I do remember some other tourists near us, though, who complained: "It's just a field, innit! Rip off!"
