Hyde900 Festival of Archaeology Meet the Experts event

Meet the experts who have supported and advised Hyde900’s community digs on the site of Hyde Abbey on the outskirts of Winchester. Have a guided tour of the 12th century cloister arch in the City Museum and its amazing discovery just centimetres below the grass in a Hyde garden! 


There will be a rota of experts in areas including pottery and ceramics,  geophys surveying, medieval glass, stonemasonry and others. Children are also catered for with opportunities to rebuild the Abbey and sort the finds from previous digs!


Archaeologists will be available to explain the background to the latest Hyde900 Community Dig (August 19 to 22) and you can even enrol to take part. All those 5 years and older can participate in either digging the trenches and sieving for finds or work with the experts learning to process the finds and record them.


Hyde900 publications will be on sale as well as the excellent Excavations at Hyde Abbey 1972 to 1999, just published by Hampshire Cultural Trust. Members of the Winchester Excavations Committee will be joining us outside the City Museum with a selection of publications for sale
