Visiting Glastonbury Abbey

This stunning image reveals for the first time how the Anglo-Saxon church on the site of Glastonbury Abbey would have looked in the eighth century. It is one of a series of digital reconstructions created based on the archaeological evidence studied by a team led by award-winning archaeologist Roberta Gilchrist.
The new images have been created as part of work to enhance the experience for visitors to the internationally-renowned site and help bring the history, heritage and legends to life.
An interactive map and the opportunity to explore the history through the recreations are due to be in-situ at the abbey’s museum in the autumn and new education resources will provide links to the National Curriculum.
