WINCHESTER: Beneath Our Feet

Winchester: beneath our feet is a special event, taking place at Winchester Discovery Centre, which looks at different aspects of archaeology in Winchester, as part of the Council for British Archaeology’s Festival of Archaeology, 2019.

A table top exhibition will feature material from Cotswold Archaeology and Pre-Construct Archaeology, Winchester Excavation Committee, Hampshire Cultural Trust, Winchester City Council, Council for British Archaeology, the University of Winchester, Hyde 900, Hampshire Field Club and Archaeological Society, and WARG, the Society for Winchester Archaeology and Local History. And there will be a book stall from P&G Wells.

Alongside this will be a programme of talks, starting at 12.00 with Professor Martin Biddle, Winchester: walking in the 'footsteps' of Alfred the Great by Professor Martin Biddle. We still walk on the Anglo-Saxon streets, and Professor Biddle will discuss their evolution.

At 1.00pm, Dick Selwood will present 60 years of Winchester Archaeology and at 2.00pm Nick Thorpe of the University of Winchester will be revealing The Secrets of a Roman Temple.

During the day there will be the chance to get hands on with geophysics on Oram’s Arbour with David Ashby of the University of Winchester.
