A stone on which is carved an inscription, a person's initials or other letters commemorating a person or event. If accompanied by a coat of arms it is classified as an ‘armorial plaque’. This term is not used for memorials of the dead found in churches, for which see ‘Wall monument’. In this case the memorial stone has been moved from its original location. These date from the later medieval period (12th-16th centuries AD) onwards.
