Community Dig 2018-Announcement

datePosted on 10:01, December 31st, 2017 by Rahsan Spurling

The Hyde900 Community Dig returns for 2018!

The dates for your diary are April 27th to 30th

For the third annual Community Dig, we have been invited back to numbers 14 and 15 King Alfred Terrace (courtesy of Chris and Anne Prior, and Justine Field), as well as a completely new area at number 10 King Alfred Terrace (thanks to Chris Scott), to continue the exciting excavation of the abbey cloisters.

In 2017 the finds proved to be of international significance, and the display of part of a stone arch of the Norman cloister is destined for Winchester Museum.

Those who attended last year’s dig may remember that the stones from the Norman arch were found in an area next to the shed at number 14. Chris Prior will be moving the shed to allow us to explore the medieval wall and paved area that continued underneath it. Altogether there will be at least four new sites to excavate, all in the expected area of the Norman cloisters, so we are anticipating a fascinating dig.

Once again, Winchester Archaeological and Local History Group (WARG) will be providing a full roster of supervisors for all stages – digging, sieving, finds processing and recording, together with the equipment. David Ashby of the University of Winchester returns as advisor to the dig, and we are also extremely lucky that Dr John Crook, Consultant Archaeologist to Winchester Cathedral, will be with us again for the event.

We are delighted to be supported by  CBA Wessex and the Aviva Community Fund, and sponsored once again by Belgarum Estate Agents.  We look forward to welcoming their Managing Director, John Leeson, back once more to open the dig.

As before, the cameras will be there courtesy of Solent Moviemakers to record the highs and lows of the excavation. There will be a daily blog which will enable you to see all the action on the website as the dig progresses.

‘Bare Ruin’d Choirs’

The Story of Hyde Abbey from Foundation to Dissolution

22 October 2017 / Sunday

Meet in the Abbey gateway, King Alfred Place, at 11:30

Following on from previous guided walks, this new tour explains not only the location of the abbey buildings, but also more of the abbey area’s sometimes troubled history, both pre and post dissolution. This includes the 2013 Unmarked Grave project as televised on BBC2, and the background to the dramatic community dig findings that will be revealed on 20th October during the King Alfred weekend.
There is no charge for these walks, but advance booking is required.

Sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

‘Breaking the Rule’
Monkish Misconduct in Hyde Abbey

22 October 2017 / Sunday

Meet in the Abbey gateway, King Alfred Place, at 15:00

guided_walk_breakingtherule

As well as touring the abbey site, the walk includes a fascinating insight into a part of abbey life that is quite different from the usual, expected, fairly austere round of quiet devotion, prayer and study. Included in this tour is the story of Hyde Abbey fighting against the bishop as they took different sides in the civil war for the throne between William the Conqueror’s quarrelling grandchildren, Stephen and Matilda. Hear how later, at least two future bishops were officially to admonish the abbots for their monks’ decidedly un-pious behaviour! Learn too how the monks were repeatedly in trouble for breaking the monastic rules and how one abbot was even paid to stay away from the abbey.
There is no charge, but advance booking is required.
Sponsored by the Heritage Lottery Fund.

Meeting Miss Austen premiere

datePosted on 12:12, June 8th, 2017 by Rahsan Spurling

Winchester festival_Austen

 

The premiere of Meeting Miss Austen by local writer Cecily O’Neill is part of this year’s Winchester Festival. Last year Hyde900 presented her adaptation of Shakespeare’s Venus and Adonis as part of the 2016 Winchester Festival.

Meeting Miss Austen is inspired by Jane Austen’s teenage depictions of love, loss, vice and victuals. Alcoholic Alice, snobbish Lady Greville, food-obsessed Charlotte and Lovelorn Tom foreshadow the great comic characters of Austen’s mature novels.

Performances: July 8th –  8pm & July 9th – 3pm
Tickets: £10 (under 18’s- £5)
Winchester Discovery Centre, Jewry Street, Winchester, SO23 8SB
Telephone: 01962 857276
