A high-tech survey is underway with hopes of learning more about Suffolk, England's ancient shrine to St. Edmund. The geophysical survey will look for traces of the "outline of vanished workshops, storerooms and refectories - the evidence of an extinct way of life" in the abbey ruins in Bury St Edmunds.
“This is really exciting work," said Ellie Collier, an archaeologist with GSB Prospection. "We should be able to see all the buildings on the site, the changes to them and in land use. It is the first geophysical survey of the whole area and will show how the abbey shaped the town.”
