Easby in 1886: Unearthing the Medieval Ruin

Multiple dates and times available

Most of what we know about Easby Abbey is based on an archaeological excavation done in 1886. This interactive tour will tell the story of that dig, how it has shaped our view of the Abbey and how things might be done differently today.
