‘We may think of the Anglo-Saxon period as a dark age. But the royal city of Winchester is a perfect example of how vibrant, cosmopolitan, sophisticated and rich this time was.Heart of Wessex under Alfred the Great, the city underwent substantial reinventions throughout the ninth, tenth and eleventh centuries. With the Benedictine revolution,centred on the massive construction projects of King Edgar and Bishop Aethelwold,Winchester became one of the most impressive cities in England.’ Dr Janina Ramirez
