English Heritage look after our National Heritage Collection, including many wonderful buildings, monuments and historic sites. The priory at Lindisfarne was founded by 634 and features many important Medieval artifacts.
Schools learning about the Anglo Saxons and the Viking Raids will find Lindisfarne was a very important place in British History, and pupils visiting the island and Priory can learn more about the church and the state, and how the local area was fought over by various ethnic groups.
The museum explores the story of St Cuthbert and the 1300 year history of Lindisfarne Priory. The collection includes the Viking Raiders stone, depicting the Viking raid on Lindisfarne in 793.
