  Crusader knight
by leics

In the North aisle of Worcester Cathedral lie three very early (1240) unidentified tombs; two men and a woman. Beautiful in themselves, and lying beneath some superb 13th century carvings, the knight is particularly interesting. His crossed legs are a sign that he was a Crusader; he fought in battles in the Middle East.

How strange, and terrifying, the eastern world must have seemed to an English Medieval knight.
