Abstract:
Reports recent archaeological work which has produced a considerable amount of new evidence for the monastic occupation of Hexham. The results of these excavations -- in 1984, 1990, and 1993 -- are described in part one of the report. Part two assesses the wider implications of this work. The evidence for the AS monastic complex, the twelfth-century Augustinian refoundation, and the establishment of the existing layout are reconsidered. The associated development of Hexham as a settlement is discussed. Glyn Goodrick & Alan Williams report `Investigations to the south-east and east of the priory church in 1993' (63--72). The major fourteenth-century additions to the church of St Andrew are placed in context in the `Introduction' by Peter Ryder (94), `The eastern chapels' by Nicola Coldstream (95--9), and `The sacristy/chapel' by Peter Ryder (99--100). The creation and development of the AS and later monastic cemeteries are described along with comments on the post-Dissolution developments at the eastern end of the priory site. Part three of the report contains specialist contributions on finds from the investigations and other associated artefacts hitherto unrecorded: the `Anglo-Saxon cross-arm' is described by Eric Cambridge (108--12) and a `Cross-shaft fragment' by Richard N Bailey (112--13); Adam Welfare describes a `Milling stone' (113--14); and Peter Ryder catalogues the surviving medieval grave-slabs and other sepulchral monuments along with a bench table from the eastern chapels in `Grave slabs from the canons' cemetery' (115--19) and `Cross slabs and other medieval sepulchral monuments' (120--6). Mike Trueman & Alan Williams describe the `Lead' objects (126--7), Susan Mills the `Medieval (post-Conquest)' pottery (127--9), and R I Macleod the `Human skeletal remains' (129--30).
