In 2007 the Committee of Convocation commissioned this brass plate commemorating the original plate which was laid on 3 July 1854 but subsequently has been lost somewhere in the foundations of the University. It was presented to the University on 17 November 2007. The plate is mounted on the east wall of the Quadrangle.
