An online talk about historic graffiti located in Southwark Cathedral


Historic graffiti is a fascinating resource that in recent years has captured the imaginations of many. Often viewed as snippets of the past left behind in stone, this resource has the ability to inform us about a building's history and the people who formerly used it.

Come see and learn about Southwark's examples of graffiti and some of their interpretations in this online event.

Crystal Hollis has spent the last eight years staring at walls and deciphering their stories. Now, as a PhD student at the University of Exeter, she specialises primarily in church graffiti and how it relates to the social culture of the past. Her previous work includes the discovery of medieval inscriptions in a transplanted chapel in the USA, and in-depth looks at graffiti in Southwark Cathedral, Exeter Cathedral, and several churches in Suffolk and London.
