Abstract :
Basing House was sacked and looted by Oliver Cromwell in 1645 at the end of an intermittent three-year siege. It was thoroughly demolished soon afterwards. Today the area of the house is looked after by Hampshire County Council as one of its heritage sites, together with other features of the estate such as the Great Barn. Describes recent archaeological work by Hampshire County Council Museums Service, between 1978 and 1991. Six areas were examined. Centres on the investigation of the Citadel gate, which began life as a medieval defence work, and ended as the approach to an 18th c. romantic ruin. Describes the investigations in detail, together with brief summaries of previous work, and of the surviving elements of this once substantial estate. Includes discussion of artefactual finds. ;
