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 about the effigy of Prince Edward at Canterbury

Last week I wrote about the latest research into the tomb effigy of Edward Prince of Wales in Canterbury Cathedral in New insights into the effigy of Edward Prince of Wales and linked to some articles reporting it.

I have now come across another online article about the project. It is from the Courtauld Institute and it gives more details of the research and also has a number of photographs of details of the effigy that can be opened up. The article can be seen at Scientific study of the tomb of the Black Prince sheds light on royal medieval England
