Ancient Floor Tiles
These decorated clay tiles date from the very early part of the construction of Salisbury Cathedral. I had not realised that English slip-ware was made so early. The stone floor was wonderfully laid and the wear of many footsteps over the centuries added to its beauty. There were also many tomb stones set in the floors that people just seemed to walk over but, out of respect, I always walked around.
