Needless to say there is a huge number of accounts, photographs and videos about the Battle of Orgreave on the net, including numerous news reports since Amber Rudd's statement of 31 October 2016. The following are in my opinion amongst the most interesting, informative or illuminating.
Articles, accounts, news reports and photographs
Because photographs of the 1984 clash are copyright, it is not possible to feature them on this web site (which instead uses photos of the re-enactment). However, some of the most evocative images from 1984 original photos are featured within the sites listed here.
