Abstract

In the analysis of a 14th century skeleton believed to be that of Sir Thomas Reynes III, a knight who had fought at Crécy, palaeopathology was applied to try to establish a positive identification. The remains were exposed during recent repairs to a 14th century monument in the chapel at Clifton Reynes, Buckinghamshire. It was thought that the skeleton had been moved and reinstated during the 18th century. Evidence is presented to demonstrate that the identification of these remains as those of Sir Thomas Reynes is not incompatible with the anthropological and palaeopathological findings.
