Anglo-Saxon burials within a monastic cemetery at Bath Abbey. These were excavated 3 m below the street to the south of the Abbey church, and include rare examples of ‘charcoal burials’. Previously excavated burials from the same cemetery have been radiocarbon dated to the 8th or 9th century AD. Documentary evidence indicates that there has been a Christian monastic community in Bath since at least the 7th century AD. The monastery became increasingly important in the later Anglo-Saxon period, culminating with the coronation of Edgar, the first king of all the English, in AD 973.
Wessex Archaeology is helping to deliver the National Lottery Heritage Fund supported £19.3 million Bath Abbey Footprint Project. The archaeological works began in 2018 and is scheduled to be completed in 2020. Wessex Archaeology are deploying a suite of cutting edge recording and analytical techniques throughout the project, including the use of photogrammetry to record all excavated areas as 3D models.
