A dig has begun at an abbey in Abbeytown.
The team are looking for evidence of a dining room and a kitchen plus rubbish to suggest what the monks ate and how they used their surroundings.
Holm Cultram Abbey was founded by the monks of Melrose in 1150. During the 12th and 13th centuries it was famous for its salt production and export of wool.
It's believed the abbey was dissolved by Henry VIII in 1538 and the place became derelict.
