Hyde Abbey, Winchester

March 2020 | Hampshire Cultural Trust

PJO Archaeology is working with Hampshire Cultural Trust on a new volume in the Winchester Museums Service series of reports on excavations in the 1970s - 1990s which is concerned with Hyde Abbey. This was founded north of the city by Henry I in 1110 for a community of monks from New Minster within the walls. Reburied in the new abbey church were the remains of King Alfred (died 899), his queen and members of his family. The report will cover re-excavation of the burial site in the church and examination of human bones which may come from the royal graves. Publication is anticipated in late 2020.
