Bornel
(Oise, France)
Saint-Denis
Surveyed:
This is an experimental section where John James is attempting to identify the carvers though the use of common templates and/or a recognisable manners of carving. Such a large-scale analysis of all the capitals in these buildings has not been attempted before. As an ongoing enterprise that is still in its infancy, we seek your input. John believes this has the potential to increase our understanding of how they worked and to provide a more solid basis for dating than we have had.
South chapel to circular plan
Remains of apse with square plan, two crossing capitals and those to eastern window remain; everything else rebuilt.
Additional work around crossing with capitals and a vault.
South nave arcade, possibly in two campaigns
North nave arcade and crossing inserted
