View in the cloisters of Canterbury Cathedral, showing the arcading with moulded trefoiled arches, above a continuous bench, with a band above of sunk circles and quatrefoils. The cathedral was founded in 597 by Saint Augustine and rebuilt in the Romanesque style by its Norman Archbishop Lanfranc. During the first half of the 12th century much was added to Lanfranc's monastery and the nave and cloisters were rebuilt in Perpendicular style in the 14th century by Prior Eastry and Prior Chillenden.
