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.

Another article on the Islamic glass from Caerlaverock

Arkeonews has an online article about the glass fragments I posted about in Medieval Islamic glass found at Caelaverock Castle

The report adds a little more about the reconstruction that has been made of the original vessel and also about how the piece might have come to Caerlaverock originally. It can be seen at Medieval Islamic glass of Scottish Caerlaverock Castle reveals untold histories
