A Day On Winchester Cathedral And The Great Hall: Celtic And Arthur Etc


Oh, ok, it’s different to what I normally do.

I spend most of the time for Winchester Cathedral and Winchester’s Great Table, on last Wednesday. Wonderful. I will use other history, and poets etc, but only mention part of it today. But, it’s awesome history.

Celtic
The first bit of Winchester is the appear of its the Iron Age, from about around 150BC, establishing by both a hill fort and also a trading settlement. Winchester was the exclusive home of the Celtic Belgae tribe.

Winchester Cathedral.
The small of Winchester is for the early to the cathedral – the part of the stone – is about 4ft to 4ft (and about 2ft high) – is the amazed for 650AD. See the photo below.

Winchester appears in early Welsh literature was called as Cair Guinntguic or Caerwynt. Over 800AD and again 1100AD was given as new names.

Alfred the Great (848/49 – 26 October 899) was King of the West Saxons and was King of Angel-Saxons from about 886 to 899. For those status from was from about from 200-250 year seen from above – see the above status, please.

(Original)
Gif her ðegna hwelc ðyrelne kylle 
brohte to ðys burnan, bete hine georne, 
ðy læs he forsceade scirost wætra, 
oððe him lifes drync forloren weorðe. 

(Today)
(‘If any man has brought here a leaky pitcher
to this stream, let him repair it speedily,
so that he may avoid spilling the clearest of waters
or losing the drink of life.’)

An administrator Alfred came from advocated, justice and order and established a code of laws and a reformed coinage. See the status at the beginning of the photo at the statue above – showing part of him on Alfred

If more was given to more new times – those 1150AA more so. See more below and below it.
