Shrine of Little St.Hugh
Little St.Hugh was a Christian boy reputedly crucified by Jews in Lincoln in 1255; the ensuing retribution resulted in the deaths of many of Lincoln's Jews. During the Cathedral restoration of 1790 a stone coffin was found containing the skeleton of a boy 3 ft 3 inches tall, seemingly confirming the tradition. The tomb was originally more substantial but destroyed during the iconoclasm of the Commonwealth, though a copy of William Dugdale's drawing of 1641 can be seen nearby.
