The stonemasons of Lincoln

Medieval cathedrals are awe-inspiring. Equally inspiring are the stonemasons and carvers who originally built the structures and who keep them maintained to this very day. The BBC has a short video on the stonemasons of Lincoln Cathedral, where construction began in the 11th century.

Interviewed are Mason Robert Girvan and Stone Carver Paul Ellis who demonstrate the craft and the tools used to produce modern versions of the medieval stone decorations.
