Mr Monkey in Taunton

"Just think, eleven hundred years of Taunton"

Mr Monkey reading the Codex Wintoniensis Mr Monkey examining some small bits of an abbey

Taunton was founded by a charter in 904, which was 1100 years ago, so they're having a special Taunton 1100 celebration. The County museum has a special exhibition about the history of Taunton from prehistoric times to the 19th century. You can tell it's a special exhibition because they've been able to borrow the Codex Wintoniensis* from the British Library.

* Boringly, this just means the Book of Winchester
