Bede's World

Bede's World is a museum in Jarrow, England, devoted to the life and times of the Venerable Bede. It seems to have been fairly highly regarded, and you can easily find good reviews of it, as well as people putting videos from their tour of the place on YouTube with laudatory comments. However, it had been having some difficulty with funds, and suddenly a few days ago they suddenly shut down for insolvency.

There's a fundraising endeavor going on trying to raise 10000 pounds to re-open the museum, which is fairly important to the community; and, of course, is a supplementary source of income for staff who were expecting at least to close out another season. So I give the link in case anyone's interested. They are already over a fifth of the way, in a matter of days.

The following is a tour of what they did at the museum that was put up on YouTube a couple of years ago:
