Over the next few months you are likely to see that some of our Abbey cases are empty. This is the first stage in preparing for the installation of the new Reading Abbey displays as part of the Reading Abbey Revealed project. These cases will include objects that are going on display for the first time and tell the story of the Abbey Quarter from prehistory to the present day.

In the meantime objects from the Abbey will be included in the Reading Abbey Quarter: Then and Now exhibition that runs from 20 May to 23 September.

You can also see many of the items at our online catalogue.
