‘The Search for Alfred the Great’

Wednesday 8th November, 5pm at Pusey Room, Keble College.
Abstract: The talk will detail the archaeological, osteological and historical detective work involved in the search for the remains of King Alfred, a collaboration between the University of Winchester and Hyde 900. The project was the focus of a BBC2 documentary in January 2014 and features in the book “The Search for Alfred the Great: The King, The Grave, The Legend”, co-authored by Katie Tucker with Edoardo Albert. The talk will include many details that do not feature in the documentary or the book.
