Winchester: Archaeology and memory

26th and 27th april 2014 at the university of winchester

A major conference organised by Winchester Excavations Committee, Winchester College and the University of Winchester

Winchester is the most thoroughly excavated city in Britain, and its excavations among the most fully recorded. It is also a City that has played a central role in the drama of English history as well and British myth and legend. Much of the last 50 years of archaeological work in the City has been published in the ‘Winchester Studies’ series, written and edited under the direction of Professor Martin Biddle. In addition the material presented within them has wider implications for the study of Winchester, its people, landscape, topography and history. Thus the aim of this two day multidisciplinary conference, and of the volume of essays we hope will emerge from it, is to make a wider reading of the archaeology, and one which also connects the material past with modern memory. Areas for discussion and debate will include memory and identity, myth, legend and history, power, space, place, architecture and fabric, communications, landscape, art, literature and piety, charity and devotion. The conference is designed to be accessible to everyone with an interest in Winchester’s past.
