Winchester Post-Roman suburbs report
October 2016 | Hampshire Cultural Trust and Historic England
Patrick Ottaway has completed the text of a major publication of excavations undertaken by Winchester Museums in 1972-1986 in the suburbs of the city. Following on from the volume by Patrick and others on the Roman suburbs, this volume is concerned with suburban development between the Late Anglo-Saxon period (late 9th - 10th centuries) and the modern day. Highlights include a group of late medieval houses and their numerous rubbish pits at Victoria Road East, just outside the north gate of the city, and King Henry II's hawk mews in the western suburb. Numerous other small sites and observations will contribute to a comprehensive overview of settlement and buildings outside the walls of one of England's most important medieval towns.
