Happy Easter

For the Easter weekend we went to see our relatives in Liverpool where we visited Norton Priory. This is a 900 year old site where monks once lived and prayed. It was demolished on the instructions of King Henry VIII as part of the Reformation. Since then the site has been used / disused on and off for various things. 
In the small museum there are relics and other items that have been excavated from all periods of history, as well as models of what the priory would have looked like before it was demolished. These are accompanied by a recording of the monks chanting to create a holy atmosphere as you wander around. 
One particular item is a 14th century statue of St. Christopher, who is the patron saint of travellers. This has a computer animated projection which brings it to life and shows how it would have looked over the many years that have past.
