St. Augustine's Abbey Canterbury: A Resource Book for Teachers.
This resource book is for teachers in England who would like to visit St. Augustine's Abbey with their students. The first part consists of background information, documents, and advice on how to plan and prepare for the visit. The second part is aimed at pupils aged 9 years and over. It includes a trail of the site, a set of classwork sheets and a crossword puzzle. St. Augustine's Abbey, now in ruins, is one of the most ancient Christian foundations in England. Established in 598, it became an important center of learning and culture during the Anglo-Saxon period. It continued to flourish under the Normans and remained in constant use until the Dissolution. The walls of the old abbey still stand in a grassy field a short walk from the centre of Canterbury. A Time Chart concludes the guide. (MM)
