resting

Sculpted sarcophagus in the the Fitzalan Chapel at Arundel Castle, West Sussex. The chapel was founded in 1390 by the 4th Earl of Arundel and is still the burial place of the Dukes of Norfolk.

As for the Castle itself, the original structure (motte and bailey) was built in 1068, during the reign of William the Conquerer, and was subsequently expanded. The Castle is now the principal seat of the Duke of Norfolk and his family.
