Panel 12 - The murder of Thomas

<< previous scene | next scene >>

Description:

Note that the slightly lighter piece of blue glass between Thomas and the first assassin is a later repair (this and other stop-gaps in this panel are thinner than the originals and transparent enough to show the chicken-wire protecting the outside of the glass). This piece would originally have included a sword striking the Archbishop and also the extended arm of his companion, Edward Grim.
