Photo of the Cologne Cathedral in Germany, from the 1930s. The cathedral is the most visited site for tourists in Germany and claims to be the burial site of the Three Wise Men. The cornerstone for the very old, very large structure was laid in 1248. #HighMiddleAges #Cathedrals
Thame Reliquary Ring ~ The Thame Hoard is made up of five medieval gold rings and ten silver groats (c.1351 – c.1457). It was found on the edge of the River Thame in 1940, by a couple walking their dog by the river bank, which was piled high with debris caused by dredging. As the man bent down to pick up a stone to throw for his dog his eye caught shiny objects amongst the gravel. The Coroner declared the hoard treasure trove and the hoard came to the Ashmolean Museum.
