HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: Jarrow monastery, containing remains of a 7th century Saxon abbey
Within the Bede's World site stand the remains of St Paul's monastery, containing the ruins of the monastery where Bede lived and worked for much of his life.
The Age of Bede exhibition displays finds from excavations on the Jarrow monastery site, some dating from the 7th and 8th centuries. Included in the artefacts are some of the first pieces of coloured glass in Britain. Also part of the Bede's World site is Jarrow Hall, a listed Georgian mansion overlooking the site of the Saxon monastery.
