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 from seventh century Suffolk

The excavation of a seventh century cemetery at Oulton near Lowestoft has revealed more than two hundred burials from several generations of a farming community. This casts further light on the life of the region in the time of the Sutton Hoo burial and that phase of Anglo-Saxon settlement in East Anglia. 

An article about the discovery from the MailOnline can be viewed at Burial site of more than 200 Anglo-Saxons discovered in Suffolk
