Introduction

2022 was the sixth year of the Hyde900 programme of community digs exploring the site of the church and cloisters of Hyde Abbey, final resting place of Alfred the Great. The excavations, which commenced in 2016, took place in the gardens of residents of Hyde, and could not have taken place without their generous assistance and the support of the advisors to the programme, Dr David Ashby (University of Winchester), Dr Dave Stewart and Dr John Crook. To date over 600 volunteers of all ages have taken part in the programme.

The 2022 programme comprised two digs and was supported by a grant from local estate agents Belgarum, with graphic design from Adam Architecture and the loan of equipment from Winchester Archaeological and Local History Society (WARG)
