SCEAFTESEGE – the lost Saxon fort at COOKHAM
A burghal hidage fort of Alfred the Great, built to defend Wessex

We have reached the exciting stage in our fieldwork where features identified could relate to the fort of Sceaftesege (known as Sashes) built by Alfred to defend Wessex against Danish raids. Our small team needs additional archaeological assistance and we invite volunteers - individuals, students or other societies.

Please contact Colin Berks MCIfA at  for information - or to arrange a fascinating talk on Sceaftesege’s archaeology for your group.
