Bristol Student Recreates Shaftesbury Abbey Using Computer Game

A 20-year-old University of Bristol history student has used a video game to help us visualise how impressive Shaftesbury Abbey would have been.

Fraser Guard has programmed the game Minecraft to create a computer-generated reconstruction, which reveals the size of the abbey and how it dominated the hilltop.

Fraser tells Alfred what he has learned about the history of our town from this process.
