A Saxon cross dating to the 10th /11th Century has been unearthed by archaeologists in Tarvin. The find is very rare and was found in a civil war trench. The Saxon cross may have been broken up before the assault of Chester in 1645 by the Parliamentary garrison. [The Past Uncovered. "Chester Archaeology Newsletter". February 2007.
