Medieval Graffiti: The Lost Voices of England's Churches

I've seen the occasional bit of old graffiti here and there in European churches and elsewhere. The Pont du Gard has some, but the earliest date I was able to spot there was 18th century. Here's a link to an article about the book linked above which examines some interesting medieval graffiti in English churches.

"Religion is fundamentally opposed to everything I hold in veneration — courage, clear thinking, honesty, fairness, and above all, love of the truth."
— H. L. Mencken
