LIONEL GREEN's book Building St Cuthbert's Shrine: Durham Cathedral and the life of Prior Turgot has been edited by Peter Hopkins since the author's death in 2010. Turgot provided continuity in the building of the cathedral, and in 1104 supervised the opening of the tomb of St Cuthbert, and arranged the transfer of the saint's remains to the shrine in the new cathedral. The foreword is by David Rollason, Professor of History at Durham University, and the book includes black-and-white illustrations, maps, and diagrams (Sacristy Press, £12.99 (£11.70); 978-1-908381-12-5).
