The misericords in St Mary of Charity Faversham, skulls and some thoughts on graffiti.

I am not sure of the date of these misericords (pronounced miz airy chords, noted as if you mispronounce something it is because you read it and are therefore a booksellers friend, but you may wish to know) I think some probably date from around 1400 and others may be modern. I know the date of the Minster ones, see   

With graffiti I wonder how old it has to be – to be ok, long sermons?

Next some of the skulls of memento mori, a sobering but uncommon reminder on gravestones that one is – a long time dead.

The rest of the pictures of St Mary of Charity Faversham

Back to work tomorrow and I bought some decent books while in Faversham so keep an eye on

Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
