Winchester, the Winchester School and art in late Anglo-Saxon England
Speaker: Professor David Hinton  (Southampton University)

Although Wessex seems to have played little part in the cultural development of the first centuries of Christianity in Anglo-Saxon England, it came to the fore during the expansion of the kingdom in the ninth century.

Winchester itself emerged as a  major centre for manuscript, textile  and metalwork production, giving its name to a distinctive artistic style. Meanwhile, excavation – principally in the cathedral cemetery – has produced a corpus of sculpture.

It is not usually possible to distinguish between different workshops within the city but, without question, the New Minster played an important part in this work.
