Wednesday 5th April – Jeremy Clutterbuck: Aldi Saxon Execution site, Andover
The exciting discovery at the Aldi site in Andover was the uncovering of a Late Saxon execution ground dated by a single silver coin (AD 979-985) found in one of the graves to the reign of Æthelred the Unready amongst other Saxon finds of belt buckles and a worked-bone handle. The Aldi site is very important because it potentially makes up >14% of all execution site victims of these diagnostic execution sites and has the potential to be the second largest execution ground known to date.
