Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland updated
"A further 5000 images from the Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture in Britain and Ireland are now available online via AHDS Visual Arts. This latest addition brings the total number of digital images available from the CRSBI to almost 19,000 images. The CRSBI project aims to photograph and record all surviving British and Irish Romanesque sculpture, making this important part of our heritage available over the Internet. A team of skilled and dedicated volunteer fieldworkers locates and visits sites where Romanesque sculpture survives, describing, measuring and taking photographs. This latest collection include images from the magnificent Ely Cathedral, Chester Cathdral, St Albans Cathedral and Peterborough Cathedral, as well as churches and buildings throughout the counties of Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Cheshire, Hampshire, Hertfordshire, Huntington, Lincolnshire, Staffordshire and Sussex"
