Crusader Days and Knights
Glastonbury Abbey is enclosed in a big churchyard that will eventually become the town’s graveyard. Either they are planning on the town growing a lot or having space for the next 1000 years. The abbey has a few outbuildings that store things but the primary focus is the cathedral and the refectory. The refectory is a two story building that serves as the living quarters for 50 monks and the abbot. It has a kitchen with a mixed staff of monks and peasant women (which is the only part of the refectory where women are allowed), a scriptorium, and lots of very small cells for the monks and friars (8 foot by 10 foot at the biggest). The Abbot’s living quarters are much larger and are rumored to be pretty nice. A couple of monks offer basic schooling at the Cock and the Crow once a week to all who are interested in improving themselves.
The Abbey built, in part, to serve as a relic repository and there are rumors swirling around that it may already have some in its possession but the Abbot has vigorously denied them.
The Scriptorium, which is attached to the side of the main Abbey, already contains a surprisingly large number of documents.
