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.

Dr Abby Antrobus, The Relationship between the Abbey and the Town - This talk will examine how, focused on the shrine of St Edmund, the abbey and town developed from their Anglo-Saxon origins into the Norman period. It will consider the archaeological evidence for the growth of the built environment as wealth was generated and expansion took place, in this period of cultural change.
