DescriptionThese are Anglo-Saxon windows of St Pauls Monastery in Jarrow. They have been recreated with coloured glass found during archaeological digs led by Professor Dame Rosemary Cramp (They were found in building D, at the bottom of the hill). A lot of the stonework will have been re-used from disused Roman builds. A small fish carving discretely resides to the left of the far left Anglo-Saxon window, and above/left of the Anglo-Saxon doorway that is now blocked up. You can find out more by visiting the ruins which are a free English Heritage site, and also at the neighbouring museum (which houses most of the archaeological finds) Jarrow Hall; Anglo-Saxon Farm, Village and Bede Museum, and by following them on social media.
