Vengeful, merciless, and hyper-violent…bunnies? This is the story of the killer rabbits in the weird world of medieval manuscripts.

Before the battle of Hexham, fought on 15th May 1464, by Graham Turner. Henry Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, was just nineteen when his father was killed at St Albans in 1455, the beginning of a vicious cycle of retribution that would come to characterise the series of conflicts now known as the Wars of the Roses. He would gain revenge at the Battle of Wakefield in 1460, where his father’s nemesis the Duke of York would die, followed by another victory at the second Battle of St Albans, but the catastrophic defeat at Towton would see Beaufort and the other surviving supporters of Henry VI take refuge in their Northumberland fortresses as they desperately tried to keep their king’s cause alive. Although he could be as ruthless as any of his contemporaries, the new young Yorkist king, Edward IV, did at times try to balance this with a policy of reconciliation, and when Somerset was captured at the close of 1462, he was fortunate to not only receive a full pardon, but become a close companion to Edward ‘who loved him well’. Somerset’s brief sojourn with the other side lasted until December 1463, when he headed north again with the aim of being reunited with his men at Newcastle. At Durham he was recognised and narrowly avoided capture while he slept, escaping barefoot in his nightshirt and leaving his armour behind. His retainers in Newcastle attempted to steal away but ‘… some of them were take and lost their heads for their labour.’ Somerset managed to make his way to Bamburgh where he joined King Henry and the remains of his resistance, and from here they organised raids, taking Norham Castle and several towns. Defeated by Lord Montagu at Hedgeley Moor on 25th April 1464, the remains of Somerset’s army were seemingly caught by surprise early on 15th May near Hexham, Montagu’s soldiers sweeping down into their camp and scattering the survivors. With their back to the aptly named Devil’s Water, there were few escape routes, and many were cut down or drowned as they tried to cross the fast-flowing river. Twenty-eight-year-old Henry Beaufort, Duke of Somerset, found his luck had finally run out and following his capture he was promptly executed in Hexham.

The Shadow by Edmund Blair Leighton
The Shadow is based on the Greek myth of Debutades, a Corinthian girl who drew the portrait of her beloved on the wall of her bed-chamber by tracing the outline of his shadowcast by the lamp-light on the night before he departed for war. Leighton changed the setting for the drama to the battlements of a medieval castle, below which the young crusader's ships are waiting.

Can you imagine what cathedrals would have been like if the medievals had access to neon lighting?

with great pain comes the great inability to form a coherent sentence
[ID: a 4-page comic in illuminated manuscript style of a person standing outside. /1: They look to the distance and say: "What is that dolorous cloud: that dreadful fright I see now on the dark horizon?" /2: They turn, upset, and say: "Alas! It is the brain fog approaching!" A purple cloud enters the panel. /3: They hold up their hands against the approaching cloud, saying: "A curse upon that fog that steals my eloquence. I...hate...it" /4: The cloud surrounds them and they say: "cloud"..."bad" /ID]
