We would like to thank the church leadership team of St Nicholas' Church and the Lavant PCC for allowing access to the monument described in this article. In publishing this work as open access, we hope to encourage further analysis of the PTMs. Our interpretation is intended as an initial interpretation, in order to begin a conversation about both the performative potential of RTI, and also of the analysis and interpretation of the tomb of Dame Mary May itself.

Dr Gareth Beale and Dr Yvonne Marshall were also present on the recording day, and we would like to acknowledge their valuable contribution to this project. Thanks likewise to Dr Adam White for his important contributions and to Dr Claire Gapper and Dr Paula Henderson for inviting us to deliver this paper at the New Insights conference in January 2015.
