St. Albans, the first British martyr, was killed near the city which now bears his name. His Roman executioner suffered a terrible penalty, which is shown in this pilgrim sign: as the sword fell, decapitating St. Albans, his attacker's eyes sprang from his head, blinding him so that he could not see the miracles which would arise from the saint's sacrifice. This sign is backed with a thin piece of brass; original pieces often had metal or paper backings to show off the openwork more clearly.
