Engravings on slate

These line drawings are copies of delightful sketches which had been scratched onto pieces of slate. They were found during excavations in Bartholomew Street East and North Street in the 1970s. The pictures include a horse and its rider, a female face, and what appears to be a gaming board. They date from between the 13th - 15th centuries.
