Recent research into the records of eclipses in the Chronicle of the English monk, Gervase of Canterbury, has indicated that an entry for the year 1187 C.E. may contain a description of solar prominences being visible during the total eclipse of that year. As such it is not only the earliest report of the phenomenon from England, but also reveals that a British Library manuscript contains the earliest surviving contemporary record of such an observation.
