Flues, valleys, glass and Viking invasion

Exciting times on the archaeological building site. On the Roman building the scaffolding is down and the hypocaust flues are going in the walls.

On the Saxon longhall shingles are creeping across the building and down into the valleys following a Romanian fashion. The star attraction is Terry’s windows, which look faaaantastic! Coloured window glass was being made at Glastonbury Abbey in the Saxon period, though the window design is from Jarrow.

The lonhgall is looking so good that it was invaded last weekend by a group of Vikings who occupied it for a day before disappearing for their next conquest.
