Tamerville - Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption

Tamerville - Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption
The parish church "Notre-Dame-de-l'Assomption" in the center of Tamerville has a remarkable Romanesque tower. The church (and the tower) were erected mid 12th century, but the church got enlarged and altered over the time. The church was dedicated to Saint Mayeul (aka "Mayeul de Cluny", "Majolus of Cluny"). Saint Mayeul, important abbot of Cluny, built Cluny II. There must have been a connection to the Burgundy in the early times.

A gentleman with an extraordinary beard. An Anglo-Saxon warrior? A twin of the weathered beard puller under the roof) Another "Sweyn Forkbeard"?
