Kingdom of Wessex Trail

The Society is involved in a project by the Sylva Foundation in Long Wittenham.  In 2016 the remains of a large Anglo-Saxon house or hall were excavated there by the Oxford University School of Archaeology.

With the aid of a Heritage Lottery Fund grant, the aim is to reconstruct the building in authentic materials.  It will be a valuable educational resource for schools and the public.  

Starting in Sutton Courtenay, a Kingdom of Wessex trail will be created to link the building with other important Anglo-Saxon sites at Sutton Courtenay and Dorchester.
