Glastonbury Lake Village Museum

The fascinating story of the Glastonbury Lake Village can be viewed in the Tribunal, the 15th century merchant’s house in Glastonbury High Street, that also houses the Tourist Information Centre.

The Lake Village Museum presents an insight into everyday life in an Iron-Age settlement, dating from around 2000 years ago, when much of Somerset’s landscape was covered by marshy sea. Although these marshes have long since been artificially drained, the excellent preservative properties of the peaty wetland soils in the Glastonbury area left an archaeological legacy of international importance.

Why not visit the Museum and see the artifacts and the story of this settlement of Celts who lived at Glastonbury just before the Romans came?

The Lake Village Museum welcomes visitors as individuals or in educational groups. The whole history and background to the Glastonbury Lake Village has been brought to life through exciting displays of the most important finds and through artists’ reconstructions. On view are the well preserved remains of a wooden dug-out canoe.
