About the event

HISTORY OF THE OLD PRIORY

Repton Priory was a priory in Repton, Derbyshire, England. It was established in the 12th century and was originally under the control of Calke Priory. It was dissolved in 1538. The priory became a place of pilgrimage on account of the shrine of St Guthlac, and his bell. Pilgrims believed that placing their head upon it would cure headaches. The buildings of Repton School, founded in 1557, incorporate remains of the priory. Grade I. The ground floor of the school is the old undercroft and has a heavy open-timbered ceiling supported on columns of 12th century date, the rest of the building being of 16th/17th century date. Structural remains of the Priory church, cloister and slype, consisting of miscellaneous lengths of walling, bases of pillars and other features were uncovered in the restoration of 1922. The wide gateway forming the main entrance to the school was part of the gatehouse and is said to date to c.1250. The priory precinct walls of ashlar almost encircle the site, restored and altered in places.

The remains of nearly 300 people believed to be those of the Viking Great Army were found on the grounds of the Old Priory.  Within the mound, there was evidence of 264 bodies, the majority of which were young men, alongside Viking weaponry and artefacts. Some of the skeletons showed signs of violent injury, adding further to the evidence that they came from an invading force.
