Alistair Douglas will be giving a talk called ‘The Story of Bermondsey Abbey from Saxon Minster to the Dissolution’, in which he will summarise evidence from extensive excavations at Bermondsey Abbey and present his ongoing research into its Saxon foundation as a Minster and development as a Cluniac church following a European model. This complex of buildings, wide range of artefacts and strategic position are all the subject of discussion within a forthcoming PCA monograph.
