Interesting video of an archaeological dig at Chicksands Gilbertine Priory

Following the news of the revival of the Gilbertine Order, it may be interesting to watch this video from the Discovery Channel about an exploratory archaeological dig at the former Gilbertine priory at Chicksands, Bedfordshire, England.

The video is admittedly rather lighthearted but it does contain a lot of information about the Gilbertine Order. And here is an artist’s impression of what the priory may have looked like in the 13th Century.

    Fascinating. Love these stories about ancient religious orders. I knew the Gilbertines existed but never understood why they were formed.
