This multi-county project is gradually spreading out westward from Norfolk and Suffolk and relies on trained volunteers to record images of church graffiti. Lincolnshire is in progress and Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire began their survey in May 2015 and are combining it with arts workshops so as to create their own designs inspired by the graffiti. There is a possibility that Matthew will be seeking volunteers for Cambridgeshire in the near future.
Earlier attitudes towards “graffiti” were very different to our own reaction to multi-coloured spray paint on hoardings and bridges. This is a large-scale archaeology project, which aims to establish an entirely new understanding of how the medieval population interacted with their churches as both buildings and institutions.
