The Caerlaverock Poem is a poem in Anglo-Norman French about Edward I's siege of Caerlaverock. It contains a description of the coats of arms used by knights who took part, and the images on this page are based on that description. This is one of the earliest records of English coats of arms. The text of the poem, with a translation, can be found on Google Books at https://books.google.co.uk/books?id=1RwNAAAAYAAJ&printsec=titlepage&redir_esc=y#v=onepage&q&f=false and on Internet Archive at https://archive.org/details/rollofarmsofprin00wrigrich.
