This theory is reinforced by the fact that the village of Nunburnholme has a strong claim to being near the site of the battlefield. Nunburnholme, which was called ‘Brunham’ in Anglo-Saxon times, lies halfway between York and Beverley, and 25 kilometres from the Humber, all places that were associated with the battle in medieval texts.
