2019 Heritage Open Days 19 to 22 September – Winchester Museum’s Refurbished Gallery

datePosted on 14:20, August 14th, 2019

Don’t miss the opportunity of making a medieval tile and seeing the amazing finds from the back gardens of Hyde surrounded by 1000 years of Winchester’s history!!


Encaustic medieval tiles

Find out how tiles were made in medieval times and try your hand at making one yourself – but be prepared to get your hands dirty! Numbers are limited to 6 per workshop session and sessions will take place hourly over the event. They will be on a strictly bookable basis only. Children are welcome. For a fee Hyde900 can arrange to have your tile glazed and fired – but at the tile makers risk!

 

Hyde900 Community Digs 2016-18

The cream of the amazing finds from the digs will be on display alongside the reconstructed Norman arch from the abbey cloisters. The finds range from a miniature head carved from stone in the 12th century, to a half round column made from limestone formed in the Roman aqueduct to Winchester.

See how the archaeology from the digs in the three gardens has redrawn the outline of Hyde Abbey cloister.
