AD BAVUAE

DESCRIPTION + /

Saxon Monastery of Ad Bavuae at Barrow, founded between 669 and 672 by King Wulfhere of Mercia and St Chad. It was destroyed by the Danes in the earliest phase of their incursions, circa 870. The supposed site is associated with the monastery because of the large number of burials without associated grave goods which have been found in the vicinity, although some gold rings were reputedly found in the cemetery. Stafford suggests that Barrow was a minster. (Excavations in 1977-8 located a Middle-Late Saxon church. See TA02SE26).
