The remains of St Augustine's Abbey in Canterbury. It was founded by St Augustine in about 598AD to mark the success of his mission to restore Christianity to England. Many of the Kings of Kent and early Archbishops of Canterbury are buried there. After the Dissolution of the Monasteries Henry VIII converted part of it to a royal palace (left end of picture). The site is now owned by English Heritage.
