medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture

The following, while not technical sites, seem to give a fairly comprehensive account of the matter. There is no suggestion of any significant damage to the floor, certainly not of any impact on the crypt. The wooden chairs may have blunted the impact of some of the falling vault masonry. The bigger issue may be water damage to the floor substrate following the extinction of the fire.

[log in to unmask] should be able to help.

Best wishes,

Does anybody know, yet, how well or how badly the floor tiling in the nave withstood the catastrophe,especially in the area directly below the collapsed roof?
Did any of that floor collapse, in its turn, into any excavated spaces (crypt) below?
How well did it hold up in terms of re-usabiity?
Who would the right person or organization be to find out.

Please respond on the forum or to me directly, as you wish..
