1,300 years ago, an Anglo-Saxon monastery stood in the village of Lyminge, presided over by a royal abbess. Excavations are now showing that Lyminge was an important place before this, with evidence for a long sequence of Anglo-Saxon occupation extending back into the 5th century A.D.
Archaeologists from the University of Reading, along with local volunteers, archaeological societies and university students have been working here to uncover Lyminge’s Anglo-Saxon past. Our work is made possible by a grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.
