Glastonbury Tribunal and Lake Village Museum
9 High Street, Glastonbury BA6 9DP Tel: 01458 832954
The fascinating story of the Glastonbury Lake Village can be viewed in the Tribunal, the 15th century merchant’s house in Glastonbury High Street, that also houses the Tourist Information Centre.
The Lake Village Museum presents an insight into everyday life in an Iron-Age settlement, dating from around 2000 years ago, when much of Somerset’s landscape was covered by marshy sea. Although these marshes have long since been artificially drained, the excellent preservative properties of the peaty wetland soils in the Glastonbury area left an archaeological legacy of international importance.
Why not visit the Museum and see the artefacts and the story of this settlement of Celts who lived at Glastonbury just before the Romans came?
