Objects reveal history of Glastonbury Abbey

Glastonbury Abbey Banner

Medieval artefacts will form part of an exhibition detailing the history of Glastonbury Abbey before and after its dissolution in 1539.

The items, including a 14th century seal, Iron age pottery and a church banner, have not been exhibited before.

It is hoped these artefacts will give an insight into life at the monastery although it does not aim to be a comprehensive history of the Abbey.

The exhibition runs from 16 April to 31 May and is open daily.
