The latest in the series of study days offered by the Norfolk Historical and Archaeological Research Group focuses on the medieval settlement of New Buckenham. Further details, costs and booking information will be posted on the NAHRG website soon.
I will be leading a pair of fieldtrips for the Southwold Museum & Historical Society to the Abbey Gardens in Bury St Edmunds and the West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village. The Abbey Gardens are the site of the Anglo-Saxon and medieval monastery of Bury St Edmunds, one of the richest abbeys in England and site of the shrine of St Edmund. The Anglo-Saxon settlement at West Stow was extensively excavated in the 1960s and 70s, and the site then became the focus of an ongoing archaeological experiment testing different reconstructions of Anglo-Saxon buildings.
