table of the lord

17 June 1986, United Kingdom
900th Anniversary of Domesday Book / The Lord

My eyes are caught by the dog under the table with large bone in its mouth. This dinner scene is showing the wealth of a Lord in 11th century. Musicians and a fool are there to entertain his guests, including a monk with sandals.

I have been reading the history of Britain recently – well, 29 years has passed since I started to live in the UK, it might be good timing to know more and understand better about this society!
