We are very pleased that Hampshire County Council has awarded a substantial grant of up to £200,000 to go towards the completion of our publications on the city of Winchester.
This grant will support our team to finish writing up and preparing the results of our decade-long programme of archaeological excavation in Winchester, for publication in the acclaimed Winchester Studies volumes.
So far, we have nine published volumes, with eight to go (two currently with our publishers). These volumes document the development of the city of Winchester from Roman times through to post-medieval, drawing on archaeological, historical, literary, architectural, and artistic evidence. More information on our volumes can be found here.

Winchester City Council will be hosting an Archaeology Day on the Central Winchester Regeneration (CWR) site, on Wednesday 6 October. This is a great opportunity to join in on a site visit led by Keith Wilkinson and ask questions of the panel of experts gathered to discuss the archaeology report and recommendations produced by CWR. The panel will be chaired by our director, Martin.
10am–Midday: join in on this informal drop in session on site with Keith Wilkinson for your chance to hear about some of the work that’s been undertaken so far. Location: Winchester Bus Station, behind the site of the old Friarsgate Medical Centre.
2–4pm: join in online (via MS Teams) for a presentation highlighting some of the findings so far and a Q&A session with the CWR Archaeology Advisory Panel. If you would like to join the session, please email CWRegen@winchester.gov.uk who will send you the link and instructions on how to join the meeting. If you have a question you would like to ask, please include this in your email.
Steve Old, Chair of WARG, will be discussing the story of the Hampshire born but Bristol based adventurer who was the inspiration for Daniel Defoe’s famous novel Robinson Crusoe.
This talk is both informative and fun so please join Steve on Monday 13th September. The talk will take place via Zoom and the waiting room will open at 19.15 with the talk starting at 19.30. The plan is to record the talk for replaying on YouTube later for those that cannot make the Zoom call.
