Once I was a clever boy learning the arts of Oxford... is a quotation from the verses written by Bishop Richard Fleming (c.1385-1431) for his tomb in Lincoln Cathedral. Fleming, the founder of Lincoln College in Oxford, is the subject of my research for a D. Phil., and, like me, a son of the West Riding. I have remarked in the past that I have a deeply meaningful on-going relationship with a dead fifteenth century bishop... it was Fleming who, in effect, enabled me to come to Oxford and to learn its arts, and for that I am immensely grateful.

More on Rendlesham

I see from the Internet that there is another article on the discovery of the royal centre of the East Anglian kings at Rendlesham in Suffolk about which I posted the other day. It is from the Daily Mail - a paper which is always good in its coverage of such things: one might joke that maybe such finds send up house prices in places such as Rendlesham...
