Coronation Mantle of the Holy Roman Emperor. Red silk, embroidered in gold & gold filigree. Enamel, precious stones, and pearls, showing a lion's battle with a camel. The Cufic inscription in Arabic round the hem states that the robe was made in 1133/4 by Arab artists for King Roger II of Sicily. It came into the possession of the Emperor Friedrich II with the Sicilian inheritance. It is thought that he incorporated the robe into the Imperial treasure after his coronation in Rome in 1220.

The oldest door in Britain in Westminster Abbey -A 900-year-old door was put in place in the 1050s, during the reign of the Abbey's founder, Edward the Confessor. The door, which measures 6.5ft by 4ft, was made from one tree which probably grew between AD 924 and 1030. Simon Thurley, of English Heritage, said: "It is incredible to think that when the door was made the Norman Conquest had not yet happened and William of Normandy was still a young man of about 20." That's pretty cool.
