The cists in Southover Church, 1845. Creator: Richard Henry Nibbs

The cists in Southover Church, 1845. 11th-century human remains found in the ruins of the ancient Priory of Lewes in Sussex, during the construction of a railway line. ...the workmen exposed a leaden Cist, or coffer, surrounded by a few square Caen stones. After clearing away the soil, the Cist was carefully removed, and, on being opened, was found to contain human bones, proved to be the remains of Gundreda, daughter of William the Conqueror, the name "GVNDRADA," as it is spelt, being cut upon the lid....'. A second cist was found, ...and on the lid is inscribed WILLMs, an old but usual way of writing Gulielmus. This has been readily interpreted into the name of William of Warren; by this means establishing the fact that these Cists contain the remains of Gundreda, the founder of the Priory, and of her lord, the first Earl of Warren and Surrey'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII

Framlingham Castle, 1845. Creator: Unknown Featured Print

Framlingham Castle, 1845. Creator: Unknown

Framlingham Castle, 1845. Norman castle in Suffolk. This picturesque ruin of a fortress of the Middle Ages, stands on the north side of the town of Framlingham, 18 miles north-east of Ipswich. The outer wall is standing: its form is irregular, approaching to a circle, and it is strengthened at intervals by square towers, 13 in number. The wall is 44 feet high, and 8 feet thick; the towers rise to the height of 58 feet. The principal gateway is on the south side, opposite the town, and is sculptured with the arms of the principal families which have possessed the Castle. There are some remains of the outworks. The area within the Castle walls is above an acre and a quarter; but the demolition of the interior is so complete, that very little idea can be formed of its arrangement. The Castle was defended, except where it was protected by the mere, by a double ditch'. From "Illustrated London News", 1845, Vol VII
