|Annotated drawing, 'Concerning a drawing of a solar portent' by unknown author
|[c 17th Century]
|The author shares a note with a drawing, stating that the drawing comes from the margins of manuscripts of the works of Henry of Huntingdon (1088-1157), who is known for his chronicle Historia Anglorum (The History of the English People). The drawing seems to refer to a solar eclipse that was observed in the year 1104 and consists of three interlocking rings.
