Besides the Cathedral, Canterbury contains four. teen parish churches—one of which, St. Martin's, is built of Roman bricks, and is supposed by antiquarians to have been erected so early as the second century of the Christian era. In the Church of the Holy Cross, St. Dunstan's, is buriel the head of Sir Thomas More.
