Philippa Chaucer - tomb

Here is a wider shot of the tomb as a whole. Note (in the top photo) that there is a Roet Wheel badge over Philippa's breast (her maiden name was Roet; the Roet family was originally from Flanders; in Flemish, "roet" means "wheel"). The original coat of arms of her sister Katherine bore (before her marriages) featured wheels as well.
