The Traitor of St. Giles

1321and Tiverton is preparing for the Feast of St Giles. Philip Dyne is in the church of St Peter's, claiming sanctuary for murder. He agrees to abjure the realm, and sets off as a penitent.

Sir Baldwin and Simon arrive at Sir Hugh de Courtenay's castle at Tiverton, just as another body is found, that of Sir Gilbert of Carlisle, discovered near the decapitated body of Dyne.

Sir Gilbert's horse and money are gone, but the coroner is keen to close the matter and declare that Dyne killed the knight and was then slain as an outlaw. Case closed.
