Abstract:
The Anglo-Saxon crypt at Hexham now lies below the nave of the Abbey. This article provides an in-depth account of the crypt, the fullest yet published, and the results of the first structural survey since one undertaken more than 120 years ago. An early history of the crypt, and its rediscovery and subsequent history until the 1880s, is provided; a background to the modern research is then given. The sources of the reused Roman stonework are described, and the survival and demolition of the Roman structures discussed. Roman and Medieval quarries and the quantities of stone required for the original church and other buildings at Hexham are also discussed. The details of the survey of the crypt are then presented. The construction of the crypt, possible antecedents to the ribbed vaults, the plaster surfaces and other features of the crypt are considered, before a concluding discussion of Roman ruins and Anglo-Saxon churches.
