Langton, Archbishop (via Warrior chapel)

The tomb of Archbishop Stephen Langton (Image 5) is not visible from the chapel gate but must be one of the oddest in the cathedral.  Langton (died 1228) was buried in the chapel prior to its rebuilding but, later, to make room for the Holland tomb, was moved to a position where he now lies with his head inside the wall but his feet sticking out beyond the chapel external wall.  Langton had made important contributions to the church (he gave the bible its chapter and verse numbers) and state (he assisted in the drawing up of Magna Carta), so he surely deserved better treatment!
