Between 2016-19 a pilot ground-probing radar survey was conducted on the overbuilt choir of Dunfermline’s Benedictine Abbey. This has thrown potential new light on the development of this major monastic church, royal cult centre and royal mausoleum, the resting place of seven of Scotland’s kings, including Robert Bruce and the saintly St Margaret.

Join Dr Michael Penman on Wednesday 13th May, as he reveals what has been uncovered following a ground-probing radar survey of Dunfermline Abbey choir.
