Happy New Year to all our readers!
We begin 2012 with the first instalment of a two-part series about the medieval glazing of Worcester Cathedral. Although very little of the original glass survives, a tentative and broad-brush reconstruction of the lost scheme is offered here. It shows what we can learn from the few remaining panels, recent archaeological discoveries, comparisons with contemporary sites elsewhere, eye-witness accounts of the state of the glass before its destruction during the seventeenth century and new research about the monastic cloister glazing scheme. This month Christopher Guy, the cathedral archaeologist, looks at the cathedral glass. Next month Roger Rosewell will assess the cloister glazing. Don’t forget to check our News section for the latest stained glass stories. Anna Eavis Editor
