Discovery in the house

Hallo, this is Jon Ward, blogging again – this time about the most amazing discovery that Jo and I made in one of the front rooms – its was Jo’s discovery really – Jo wanted to have a look at some of the wiring in the older part of the house and it was her who pulled it away to uncover the most fascinating thing: letters carved into the plaster behind the panelling.

I’ve transcribed the letters and we’re pretty sure they’re in Latin. Sadly none of us can translate them, although they do contain the word ‘flora’ which both Stephen and Jo assure me is something to do with flowers, a fact that Stephen finds very interesting: he says there’s a lot of folklore in the area about flowers, which would certainly make sense.

At a guess, and Jo thinks I’m right, the panelling is probably Victorian, which would put the carvings at at least a hundred years old, which is really something – anyway, once we get them online, we’d really like to know what you think of them – it’s great all the response we’ve had to the EVP clips that Gary’s been putting up – it’s really exciting to have the audience so involved in the project like this: I hope you’re enjoying it as much as we are
