This photo post is inspired by photographer Norm Frampton who has a regular feature on his blog call #Thursday Doors. Below are two ancient doors found in the historic King’s Manor at the University of York in northern England.
The remaining building dates from the 15th century and began as the Abbot’s House. It survived the dissolution of the monasteries, although the adjacent St Mary’s Abbey was destroyed by Henry VIII. King’s Manor houses the departments of Archeology and appropriately, Medieval Studies (but not Renaissance studies?).
What better place to study the Medieval period than in the City of York which boasts incredible medieval architecture (see previous blog: historical-york-england).
