The fascinating story of the Glastonbury Lake Village can be viewed in the Tribunal, a 15th century grade 1 listed building, that also houses the Tourist Information Centre. The Lake Village Museum, housed on the upper floor of the historic Tribunal building in Glastonbury High Street, presents a fascinating insight into everyday life in an Iron-Age settlement, dating from around 2000 years old, when much of Somerset’s landscape was covered by marshy sea. Although these marshes have long since been artificially drained, the excellent preservative properties of the peaty wetland soils in the Glastonbury area left an archaeological legacy of international importance.
