Re: Sinclair sites / round churches

Niven Sinclair wrote regarding Henry Sinclair:   

.. "He was also familiar with the round churches at Orphir and at Egilsay in 
with the round churches at Nidaros (Trondheim) and Tunsberg in Norway and
with the five round churches on the Island of Bornholm in Denmark where was
was Ambassador from 1363 to 1365."

Now, during Henry Sinclairs' lifetime the church at Nidaros(Trondheim) could hardly be called a round church. The Nidaros church was then a full-size gothic cathedral,
one of the largest in northern Europe, and it's still there today. Various historical sources confirm the fact that there wasn't any round church in Trondheim at the time.
