Excavations in Winchester

Excavations have been taking place in Jewry Street, Winchester, prior to the building of new flats, offices and a restaurant.

The site lies inside the Iron Age enclosure of Oram’s Arbour and within the Roman town of Venta Belgarum and the Saxon town of King Alfred. In the medieval period houses lined Jewry Street, the homes of tradesmen and craftsmen - amongst them weavers, bookbinders and carpenters. Archaeologists from Wessex Archaeology have uncovered a deep pit or cellar, evidently connected with the medieval buildings.

Work continues until 29th June.
