News: “Over the graves of the Druids and under the wreck of Rome,
Rudely but surely they bedded the plinth of the days to come.
Behind the feet of the Legions and before the Norseman’s ire
Rudely but greatly begat they the framing of State and Shire
Rudely but deeply they laboured, and their labour stand till now.
If we trace on ancient headlands the twist of their eight-ox plough.”

-Rudyard Kipling

............or at least his head!

Following his execution Sir Thomas More's head was placed on London Bridge and was rescued by his daughter Margaret Roper an interred in the family vault at St Dunstan's Without Westgate at Canterbury where it lies still.

Apologies for some of the pics of documents but they are mounted and pick up reflections!
