Talks at Two: Reading Abbey and the Abbey Quarter

A presentation and talk on the Abbey Quarter by the authors of the new Two Rivers Press illustrated guide, on sale now in the Museum and via our online shop. This will cover the history of the Quarter from the foundation of a Royal Abbey by Henry I, through its dissolution by Henry VIII, use as a royal palace under Elizabeth I, and the destruction of the Civil War, to the subsequent redevelopment and architectural rejuvenation of the Quarter in the nineteenth century and the more recent conservation programme.
