About the project

The excavations at Leiston Abbey were part of a four-year project to unearth the untold story of Suffolk’s finest medieval ruins. Over the years, more than 500 crowdfunders have helped us carry out in-depth excavations, and start piecing together the story of what happened here 700 years ago.
