From the time of its Iron Age settlements, rulers, bishops and inhabitants over the last two millennia have left their mark on Winchester, the ancient capital of Wessex. Anglo Saxon street plans, medieval gateways and castles still preside, as do buildings of religious and scholarly importance. It is this history, tinged with myths and legends, and tales of our most celebrated monarch King Alfred, which attracts people from all around the world. Winchester's rich history provides all with a truly fascinating story. Within the pages of this book, Winchester expert and author Anne-Louise Barton charts the town's history through a unique selection of old photographs, prints and postcards to show what life was like for Winchester's past residents, and to highlight the celebrations and the struggles that this picturesque, bustling town has witnessed.
