Thanks to the magic of the internet, you can still watch most of the pilot — and it is some twincredibly awesome throwback gold!I will start off with just the intro clip, which is essentially the title sequence.
In its design, it was a key stepping-stone on the way to the greater formalisation of monastic claustral layouts, and communal as opposed to eremitic life, which accompanied the development of written monastic rules across Europe during the course of the next century, leading to the standard claustral layout which would come to dominate medieval European society and then be transferred to other parts of the world.
The founders of Wearmouth-Jarrow and the scholarly ideas of Bede created a gateway for the ideas of late-Roman antiquity to enter the emerging early medieval world: through Wearmouth-Jarrow the skills and learning of late antiquity centred on the Mediterranean Sea, and the ideas of the early Christian world were not only transferred to the northern limits of the emerging literate world, but combined, developed, remodelled and expanded, then exported back to Europe and beyond.

He has been in a relationship with another woman for years, and they both seem to get along GREAT with his kids.
Interestingly, Darcey’s sister Stacey had a -ish experience of her own.
Criteria met: (ii) The considerable surviving monastic complex at Wearmouth-Jarrow was founded in a transitional period during which Christianity was gaining wider acceptance and developing new forms across Europe.
It provides evidence of the arrival in Britain and development in Europe in the seventh century of ordered, communal monasticism, and the revival of the Roman style of architecture and is an early and formative example of the cloister layout which became standard in Europe north of the Alps during the next millennium and was later transferred to other parts of the world (iii) The surviving monastic complex at Wearmouth-Jarrow provides an exceptional testimony to the cultural tradition of Western European Christian monasticism at an early, formative stage (iv) The complex at Wearmouth-Jarrow is the earliest surviving and most completely excavated Western European example of a monastic foundation, purpose-built for communal living and scholarship at a formative period for Europe north of the Alps during its transition from late-Roman antiquity, dominated by the culture and learning of Greece and Rome, to the emerging Christian European Middle Ages.
The outstanding library and teaching assembled at Wearmouth-Jarrow, and its scholarly ethos, were unlike anything else available in its day.
Particularly through the prolific and wide-ranging works of its most renowned thinker, Bede, Wearmouth-Jarrow at its apex became the primary intellectual centre of Western Europe, the scriptorium developing a faster script in order to keep up with demand from across Europe for copies of its scholarly output.
Its architectural style and the techniques used to build the twin monastery had hardly been seen in Anglo-Saxon England since the departure of the Romans three centuries earlier.
