For decades before the discovery of the Sutton Hoo ship-burial, the princely burial at Taplow was considered to be the most important burial from Saxon times in the whole of England.
At 2.30 p.m. on the afternoon of 28th April 2018 Leslie Webster, former Senior Keeper of the Anglo Saxon and Viking collections at the British Museum, will give a talk entitled “Buckinghamshire’s Saxon Prince: the Taplow Burial”. She will tell the story of the excavation at Taplow and talk of more recent finds from the Saxon period.
This meeting takes place on the first day of the Wycombe Arts Festival and is included in their programme which can be downloaded here.
The meeting will be hosted jointly by the Buckinghamshire Archaeological Society and the High Wycombe Society.
Free Admission and Refreshments Available after the talk.
