Full image caption

Altarpiece fragments depicting the birth of John the Baptist. Thousands of altar-pieces and religious images were destroyed in the dissolution and iconoclastic purges of Edward VI. Most, like these painted alabaster fragments found imbedded in a brick culvert in Hart Street, were used for building rubble, but some were exported abroad.
