Here’s some rather wonderful images from Winchester Cathedral.
Many old churches have lovely carved tombs to dead crusaders, but this one, remembering the Earl of Arundel and his second wife Eleanor, from about 1307 is rather special.
Despite their wealth they left instructions to be buried together without pomp. She has her legs crossed, like many of the knights, but here she is turning towards her beloved husband. He holds the chainmail glove from his right hand in his left so he can hold her hand in death.
It is believed to be the first tomb in Britain to show romantic love.
Her feet rest on a defaced but devoted dog, looks more like a pig; his rest on a small lion.
