A great big Thanks to Brad Verity!

Who has sent me 2 marvellous photographs from Winchester Cathedral of the tomb of Piers Gaveston's father, Arnaud de Gaveston. I'm amazed it has survived so well. A big thank you Brad as well for the link to your brilliant website - geneology and the descendants of monarchy.

Here's the link for anyone who wants to check it out -

Yay, Piers' dad! How cool that his tomb still exists. I really, really wish that Piers' did too. :(

Hi Kathryn - I bet Edward gave iers a spectacular tomb! Would be great if someone re-discovered it. I do wonder if he was re-interred in the nearby church, when the Dominican friary was dissolved. I know of another tomb that was.

Anerje, I've gathered a few details of Piers' funeral and tomb from various sources - can send them on, if you like?

Was it Ed II's grandson Edmund, duke of York whose tomb was re-interred?

hi Kathryn - you know, you can always send me any Piers related info - I can't get enough:> Thank you! And yes, it was Edmund Duke of York who was re-interred. I finished the Dodge book, and he has some interesting info on Piers' burial place. Hope to get a post completed by the end of the week!
