Hyde900 event, 29 July–1 August
Join members of Hyde900 outside the City Museum, Winchester, from 29 July – 1 August for your opportunity to meet the experts who have supported and advised Hyde900’s community digs on the site of Hyde Abbey.
There will also be opportunities to join in on guided tours of the 12th century cloister arch in the City Museum and its discovery just centimetres below the grass in a Hyde garden. Children are catered for with opportunities to rebuild the Abbey and sort the finds from previous digs!
Members of the Winchester Excavations Committee (WEC) will also be on hand, and both WEC and Hyde900 will have a selection of their publications available for purchase.
Event opening times are 10am–5pm each day. Further details will be released here tomorrow, Thursday 29 July.
