The apsidal choir and crypt were reconstructed by Archbishop Roger (1154-81), the S. transept by Archbishop Walter de Grey (1216-1255), and the N. transept and central tower by John Romanus, treasurer of the cathedral (1228-56).
With the rebuilding of the choir the whole of the ancient Norman edifice was removed, the only Norman architecture now remaining being the E. portion of the crypt of the second period, built by Archbishop Roger (11 541191).
