JEDBURGH ABBEY, a 12th century Augustinian abbey located on the Scottish Borders, has selected the industry-leading MxPro 5 panel, from Advanced, to protect a rich heritage of treasures on display in its visitor centre.
Founded by David I, King of the Scots, nearly 1000 years ago and famed for itsunusual architecture, Jedburgh Abbey is one of the four great abbeys established in the Scottish Borders. The Abbey’s museum houses some of the famous works of art associated with the early history of the site and some of the artefacts discovered during excavations.
