Find out about the project
The East Sussex Medieval Graffiti Survey (ESMGS) is a research project aiming to photograph and record the graffiti in the county’s medieval churches.
Inspired by the Norfolk Medieval Graffiti Survey, the ESMGS is one of a growing number of volunteer-run county surveys.
This site will be regularly updated with photographs from surveys as they are completed. As the graffiti that is found can be difficult to interpret, we welcome any and all suggestions and theories so please contact us if you can help in any way, including by volunteering to record a church.
