The Hamwic Story

Also known as Hamtun. An 8th Century Settlement, Port & Production Centre that was located on the site that the new Southampton Football Club stadium is built upon. Excavations at the site of the stadium found graves furnished with weapons, gold and fine jewellery. An unknown fact is that they left a lot of these archaeological finds underneath the pitch. “It is an intriguing thought to imagine Southampton’s Premiership League footballers are dancing over all this surviving Anglo-Saxon archaeology”.

By the middle of the 8th Century it had given its name to the “Shire” (Hamtunshire), now known as Hampshire. Our Logo is taken from the Tudor Rose. This also carries a long standing recognisable local identity that is placed upon the City of Southampton crest and Southampton Football Club’s badge, as well as many local council crests.
