New book ‘Winchester, St Swithun’s ‘City of Happiness and Good Fortune’ - An Archaeological Assessment’ by Patrick Ottaway

Taken from Winchester City Council press release:
Winchester City Council and Historic England have announced the publication of a landmark volume providing a single, comprehensive account of the archaeology of Winchester.

The new volume, titled after St Swithun, Anglo-Saxon bishop of Winchester and the city’s patron saint, forms part of a national archaeological programme sponsored by Historic England, and was produced by the Archaeology Section of Winchester Museums and latterly the Historic Environment Team at Winchester City Council. Written by Patrick Ottaway, the book is a review of over 2000 years of the history of Winchester and provides a critical assessment of the archaeology of the city and its immediate environs. The richly illustrated book also assesses Winchester’s role on the wider regional, national and international stage over its long history and covers archaeological discoveries in the city from the first recorded find of Roman and Saxon antiquities.
