During the last 20 years a number of archaeological projects have been carried out within the precinct of Glastonbury Abbey. Some have entailed small-scale excavation - for example those tackling drainage problems - but more commonly studies have arisen from the programme of conserving the monument's upstanding masonry. The careful examination of the fabric and the preparation of detailed records of its form and structural history are necessary processes in carrying out such work; the records compiled form important tools in the ongoing care of the monument. Some remarkable discoveries have emerged from this work, including the recovery of the fragmentary remains of a spectacular painted scheme within the Lady Chapel, and the recognition of evidence which allows new interpretation of the building programme of the great church. The series of reports is designed to give access to this new information.
