Get ready to see Shaftesbury from a new perspective. ‘Shaftesbury Abbey – The Movie’ will be screened online later this month.
The thirty-minute documentary tells the story of the 2019 SAVED Project excavations, when archaeologists and community volunteers worked together to learn more about Alfred’s Saxon burgh and the Abbey he founded.
Film maker Steve Shearn spent twenty years working on the TV show ‘Time Team’. He says his footage includes incredible aerial and drone shots and offers a sense of the scale of the abbey. “I think before we made the film, I hadn’t really encompassed just how big it was,” he said.
Listen to Steve and lead archaeologist Julian Richards talk about the screening. You can book here.
