Medieval priory found beneath Somerset barn

Researchers working on artifacts found beneath a 16th century barn near Dunster, England believe they belong to the Benedictine Priory of Dunster which dates to 1127 CE. Archaeologists have so far discovered two walls, paving and glazed tile fragments.

The renovation of the 16th century tithe barn which led to the discovery of the medieval remains is part of a the UKĀ£450,000 restoration project to turn the barn into a community center. The excavations of the older remains have been re-covered, awaiting future projects.
