The Corpus of Romanesque Sculpture is a complete online record of all the surviving Romanesque sculpture in Britain and Ireland, at more than 5000 sites. It provides us with a unique window on the aesthetics, beliefs, daily life, preoccupations, humour and technical skills of the artists and people of this creative and formative era from the late 11th century to the late 12th century.
Every entry is freely available and includes information on the historical and architectural context of the building, a first-class photographic record, and a scholarly description of the sculpture. Our work continues and many sites are already available on this website.Read More

Regular users of our website will realise that our website has been completely redeveloped, thanks to the support of English Heritage and the technical expertise of the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College. The new website became available in early 2014. The changes not only solved the problems we had with 'missing' site reports from a technical glitch, but vastly improved our search capacity, giving users many more ways to find what they need. The update also made it easier for us to add site reports and photographs, so that the website can develop more quickly. We hope you have found these changes helpful.
