The Ancients

By SlowSong
Some stones in Canterbury Cathedral with ancient scratchings. I'm rather taken with the rather sharp nails on the hand in V3. Creepy. Smile

I'm glad you enjoyed yesterday's efforts, and was pleased to see that the guys joined in with the fun, dare I say, even more than the girls. Grin
However, no hidden goodies today.

Makes one wonder what type of persons the ancient graffiti writers were compared to today's...

There is a fort in Florida that has some grafittti like this, they say it was done by prisoners-- Here, it is the date that fascinates-- Wonderful stories come to mind!

There was so much carving in the cathedral you could fill a book. I didn't see most of it. But when you see really ancient carvings you can't help but wonder. Smile

Perhaps he scratched the images with those nails! Well illustrated damage, Chris.
