Cathedral Graffiti – better than it sounds!

Although much of the archaeological attention focuses on Orkney’s magnificent neolithic sites, that is not the whole story.

St. Magnus Cathedral in the centre of Kirkwall is coming under close scrutiny with this fascinating new study and investigation.

Over its 800+ year history, many people have left their mark in this building. Sometimes officially, but often not so officially. This project aims to investigate and record the marks, scratches and scribbling that can reveal much about the people who left them.

A team of volunteers is being recruited and trained to help this project. If you would like to find out more – follow these links.
