Description

From Videmus, the online magazine for medieval stained glass (http://www.vidimus.org/index.html): This feature supports the launch of a major campaign by the Wearmouth – Jarrow Partnership to have the remains of two Anglo-Saxon monasteries at Wearmouth and Jarrow declared a World Heritage Site. Apart from playing a major role in the development of Christian culture and learning in the early medieval west, these sites are particularly well known for the significant amounts of seventh- and eighth-century window glass recovered by archaeologists over the past fifty years. This article reviews these findings and brings readers up to date with the latest discoveries.
