Brass Rubbings

Have you ever done a brass Rubbing?  Neither had I, until this week when my son's class through our charter had a field trip which consisted of doing these fantastic rubbings.  We went to St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Long Beach.  They allow walk-ins every Saturday 11-3pm in case you want to try this ($7) I love medieval history so this was right up my alley. I didn't know that these tiles with inlaid brass were created to save space in the churches because the statues were getting to be too much on the floor space, but I do now!
