It's January 1327. You’re a townsperson, living outside the walls of the great Abbey of St Edmund. This abbey is one of the most important Benedictine monasteries in England. Many visitors come here to pay respects to the relics of King Edmund. But you and your fellow townsfolk have become increasingly incensed by the wealth and power of the abbey.

    Starting at the cathedral and ending closeby in the Abbey Gardens, you'll visit the town's top historic sites. Playing the part of a 14-century townsperson, you'll find yourself embroiled in the Great Riot of 1327. As you walk around the town with a growing angry mob, you'll need to solve some challenges along the way.


The time has come to make a stand against the abbey which dominates the town. 

The Abbey of St Edmund is well-protected, rich, and powerful, but with enough people, you might be able to get your message heard. You'll need plenty of manpower and proper written demands. 

Let's start the day at church and then make our way around Bury St Edmund's medieval grid.
