Canterbury Cathedral is one of the oldest Christian structures in England. It was founded by Augustine in 597 A.D. Having been destroyed by fire in 1067, it was completely rebuilt. Further fire damage resulted in major reconstruction in 1174. The cathedral became a place of pilgrimage after Thomas Becket, the archbishop of Canterbury, was murdered in the cathedral by knights of King Henry II, on 29th December 1170. During the late 14th Century,Geoffrey Chaucer wrote The Canterbury Tales, which is a collection of stories told by jovial pilgrims, as they made their way along The Pilgrims Way, from London to Canterbury.
