Tudor tombs re-created by historians and scientists

Archival experts are teaming up with scientists to re-create two Tudor monuments using a combination of cutting-edge technology and document research. The two tombs, both victims of Henry VIII's dissolution of the monasteries, are those of Thomas Howard, 3rd Duke of Norfolk and Henry Fitzroy, Duke of Richmond, illegimate son of Henry VIII. (photo)

The tombs were planned to lie in St Michael's Church, Framlingham, Suffolk, but were never completed. Experts used period prints and documents, as well as "3D laser scanning and 3D prints to recreate the monuments as they were originally intended."
