AETHELFLAED & GLOUCESTER; THE GOLDEN MINSTER CAROLYN HEIGHWAY & MICHAEL HARE

Sold Out

After a series of intriguing digs, archaeologist Carolyn Heighway and historian Michael Hare revealed St Oswald’s Priory as the church built by Aethelflaed and the place where she was buried. The extraordinary works of art they unearthed – truly worthy of a royal mausoleum – include the ornate grave-cover which may have lain over the tomb of the Warrior Queen herself. They explore the inside story of the excavations, their important new discoveries and tell the fascinating Anglo-Saxon tale of St Oswald’s - a church so famous for its wealth, its glory and its miracles, it was nicknamed ‘the Golden Minster’.
