The history of the Royal Arms

To coincide with the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations, the Churches Conservation Society has posted an interesting interactive history of the Royals Arms, covering the different parts of the arms and what they represent, as well as how they have changed over time.

For nearly a thousand years the Royal Arms have played a vital part in the history of this country. They appear: all over our most famous buildings, from Windsor Castle to Westminster Abbey, giving us invaluable clues as to when they were built; on manuscripts and magnificent royal tombs, indicating ownership; and you come into contact with the Royal Arms every day on bollards in the street and the Royal mail.
