Wed 8th Mar – 7pm: Historic Graffiti – the Hidden Story of the Hopes, Fears and Desires of a Nation

Please also see our events page.

We are delighted to announce our first event of 2017, a talk by James Wright (University of Nottingham) on the awesome subject of Historic Graffiti:

Modern graffiti is often seen as transgressive and stupid. However, look closely in the light of a torch at the walls of our historic buildings, trees, caves and rockfaces and you will see a world of graffiti left that illuminates the psychology of our ancestors. The study of historic graffiti enables us to hear the lost voices of ordinary individuals through their images of daisywheels, ships sailing across the walls, knights drawing their swords, demons stalking the stonework and every animal imaginable…
