The House of Wessex: Anglo-Saxon hall complexes

Overview

HELD IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE GROUP  

The House of Wessex: Anglo-Saxon hall complexes, their architecture, use and setting

This day school is linked to an exciting project The House of Wessex, which is reconstructing in situ an Anglo-Saxon hall-building recently excavated near Oxford (Long Wittenham). Saturday’s talks will investigate the complex architecture of halls, their function and related landscapes. An overview of hall buildings will lead into a series of case studies from around the country exploring the various themes, including reconstructing structures from archaeological evidence. On Sunday, you may visit the reconstruction site independently where craftspeople, archaeologists and re-enactors will be on hand to explain the project https://sylva.org.uk/wessex
