Abbey of St Edmund Millennium 1020 – 2020 From Rise to Ruins. Four online talks live-streamed free from St Edmundsbury Cathedral to celebrate the 1000th anniversary of the founding of the Abbey.

Professor Mark Bailey, The Abbey of Bury St Edmunds and the History of Suffolk - The abbey possessed vast landed estates and extensive judicial powers throughout Suffolk, and the ways in which it exploited its properties and its rights had a profound influence upon Suffolk life in the Middle Ages: and, indeed, the consequences of some of those decisions are still evident in the modern landscape. This talk considers the abbey's external relationship with the people of medieval Suffolk, including its stormy relationship with the town itself.
