Winchester Cathedral (Old Minster)

 Wall Painting, Old Minster, Winchester
WInchester Cathedral became known as the Old Minster after the foundation of the New Minster, around 900. The cathedral had been founded two-and-a-half centuries earlier, and had become renowned by Wulfgar's day as the shrine of St Swithin (died 862). The cathedral and the royal palace in Winchester were very close together. 

This fragment of painted plaster was found in the 20th-century excavations of Winchester by Martin and Birthe Biddle. It may come from the the ninth-century Old Minster.
