This outline drawing in ink shows the ancient table in the kitchen of the deanery of Durham Cathedral. Note Grimm's sketch of a cat in the shelf beneath the tabletop: while animals were indeed kept here prior to their preparation for a meal, it seems likely that Grimm drew this one as a pointer to the scale of the table.
