'The Rochester Chronicle' is a version of another popular chronicle called the 'Flowers of the Histories', into which a monk called Edmund of Haddenham interpolated material relating to Rochester. This is the unique manuscript of his work. It has the added interest of a large number of marginal drawings and a few fully painted miniatures which relate to the text. It also has some historiated initials and a large number of amusing penwork doodles. There is little doubt that this manuscript was made at Rochester, perhaps by or under the supervision of Edmund himself.
