We have three different Christmas card designs on offer this year.

The first design, new for 2016, features a piece of Anglo-Saxon wall painting found during Martin Biddle’s excavations of New Minster and dates to the later 9th century. These cards are A6 in size and are available in packs of 5 cards at £2.50 per pack.

Our other two designs feature the Anglo-Saxon Cathedral of Old Minster at different stages of its development. Taken from original watercolours by our illustrator Simon Hayfield, these cards are A5 in size and are available in packs of 6 at £3.00 per pack.
