Burford, St John, Oxfordshire, *****

“Burford is the queen of Oxfordshire, a paragon and museum of the English parish church…In the nave north aisle, a superb classical memorial recalls Edmond Harman, Henry VIII’s barber and courtier. His memorial, completed before his death, carries the first known depiction in England of the Indian inhabitants of the New World, believed to have been copied from a Flemish book.”
