As one of the first significant cities, Winchester was an international melting pot where people and ideas came together from across the world.
Through a three-year programme of exhibitions, events and digital innovation, we will reveal the fascinating stories of Anglo-Saxon Winchester and its people, exploring how they shaped who we are today.
We need to raise £500,000 over three years to realise our vision for Winchester to become the recognised centre for the Anglo-Saxon story.
“We wouldn’t be who we are today if it weren’t for the Anglo-Saxons… So many of the great things we gave the world can be traced to this time.”
