Bath Abbey Footprint Project - A Talk by Cai Mason

at Redcatch Community Centre

Cai Mason visits to give us an update on the Bath Abbey Footprint Project.

Since 2018, Wessex Archaeology West have been undertaking extensive excavations in and around Bath Abbey in relation to the Heritage Lottery Fund supported Footprint Project. The archaeological work has uncovered evidence of Mesolithic activity, Roman streets and buildings, and an Anglo-Saxon monastery and associated cemetery that contains example of rare ‘charcoal burials’. In the medieval period, a huge cathedral priory was constructed on the site, the remains of which have been found 2m below the floor of the present early 16th-century abbey. Later remains include 18th/19th-century burials, Georgian buildings and a Victorian print works.
