Archaeologists Were Looking for a Medieval Hermitage. They Found a 'Monumental

Around 700 C.E., St. Guthlac, the son of a nobleman, gave up a life of riches to live in solitude as a Christian monk. After spending two years at a monastery, he left to live as a hermit in Crowland, now a town in Lincolnshire, England. Others had previously tried and failed to settle in the area, which was said to be haunted by evil spirits and demons.

Guthlac established a hermitage in Crowland, where he lived until his death in 714. His legacy endured, and his followers later founded Crowland Abbey in his memory.
