The Battle of Stamford Bridge Heritage Society (BOSBHS) was formed to commemorate, celebrate and promote The Battle of Stamford Bridge 1066 and the Viking and Saxon era of 8-11th Century. The society has recently expanded it’s aims to examine the history, archaeology and social events of Stamford Bridge as a whole.

In 2016 the society organised a major event to commemorate the 950th anniversary of the battle, photographs of this hugely successful event can be seen on the Gallery page. The battle weekend was also a fitting tribute to Tom Wyles who we sadly lost last year and a great achievement for everyone who was involved in the organisation.

The society holds monthly talks, meetings and visits throughout the year as well as attending many local events, often in period costume. Major projects include the creation of “The Stamford Bridge Tapestry” to rival those of Bayeux and Fulford and an exploration of the archaeology of Stamford Bridge.
